Nearly one-third of regulated housing units in East Harlem will lose their rent protection by 2040, according to this survey by the Regional Plan Association.

From the RPA's website:

The report lays out a range of strategies that community residents and leaders can pursue to preserve an adequate supply of affordable housing. Those strategies include working directly with owners to keep these units affordable; encouraging residents' participation in public-housing initiatives; and providing safety nets for tenant relocation when deregulation does occur.
