NEW YORK (AP) - New York City plans to run ads to raise awareness about the new rent guidelines that took effect his month.

The New York Times (https://nyti.ms/1G1XyRA ) says the city will spend $1 million on the ads intended to promote the rent freeze enacted this year for rent-regulated tenants.

The ads will begin appearing this month in newspapers, subways, radio and online.

In June, the Rent Guidelines Board voted for a freeze on one-year rent-stabilized units and two percent rent increases on two-year leases.

The head of the Rent Stabilization Association, the city’s largest landlord organization, criticized Mayor Bill de Blasio for championing a decision by the independent board.



De Blasio is scheduled to hold a town hall-style meeting, the first of his term, on rent security and tenant protection on Wednesday.
