 Certification of No Harassment (“CONH”) Pilot Program  Concept Paper May 14, 2018

The Concept Paper is a precursor to the forthcoming New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (“HPD” or “Department”) Housing Litigation Division (“HLD”) Certification of No Harassment (CONH) Pilot Program Request for Proposal (RFP). The CONH program was initiated in 1974 for the Special Clinton District and was expanded over the years to cover Single Room Occupancy (SROs) and additional Special Zoning Districts. The goal of this program is to provide enhanced investigation capability to the Department’s existing capacity in light of the passage of Local Law #1 of 2018 which expands the requirements for a CONH to properties meeting the criteria outlined in the law. The underlying rationale for the program is to disincentivize owners of buildings throughout the City and in specific re-zoning areas that meet specific criteria as set forth in the legislation from harassing tenants to leave their apartments. Building owners seeking permits from the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB) to materially alter or demolish their building must first obtain a CONH. The intent of Local Law #1 of 2018 is to create a time-limited CONH pilot program and allow for a meaningful evaluation of the program’s accuracy and efficacy in addressing harassment in buildings in particular geographic areas.

HPD is issuing a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) in response to HUD's announcement, in 2017, of its intention to award a Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration (LHRD) Grant to the City of New York.  HUD Lead Hazard Reduction Demonstration Grants provide funding for the HPD Lead Hazard Reduction and Healthy Homes Program (also known as the Primary Prevention Program). The Program offers federally funded grants for lead treatment to owners of single and multifamily buildings constructed prior to 1960.
HPD anticipates the new HUD LHRD grant starting in Summer 2018; and intends to work with Community Based Organization(s) to undertake outreach to local building owners and residents in specific neighborhoods listed in the RFQ.
