Tenants who qualify for the Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE) or Disability Rent Increase Exemption (DRIE) Programs can have their rent frozen at their current level and be exempt from future rent increases authorized by the Westchester, Rockland or Nassau Guidelines Board for rent-controlled, rent-stabilized, and Mitchell-Lama apartments. To compensate the landlord for the lost income, the landlord receives an abatement on his or her real property taxes equal to the foregone rent. The municipality decides whether or not to participate and what the income cap should be.
