Education and Outreach

Landlord and Tenant Resource Fairs

Bring Housing Resources to Your Community

HPD's Neighborhood Education and Outreach unit can bring housing resources directly to your community. We partner with local elected officials, community groups, and sister agencies to organize Landlord and Tenant Resource Fairs where building owners or tenants can have one-on-one discussions with representatives of non-profits and government agencies and receive consultations, apply for services, and resolve housing-related issues.

Call the Neighborhood Education and Outreach office at (212) 863-8830 to plan an event for your community.
