Housing Rights Project (HRP) builds awareness of, and advocates for, solutions to issues on the housing spectrum. HRP generates awareness amongst CUNY Law students and staff, supports established community efforts, provides legal support where possible, and promotes effective, person-centered housing policies and systemic change.

The HRP mission is supported by two project-groups, the Housing/Anti-Gentrification Project and the Homelessness Project. Each project is a working group consisting of HRP members and a leader, who all develop project ideas to work on within CUNY or the greater New York community.
