The NYC Recovery Data Partnership (RDP) is a first-of-its-kind effort for community, non-profit, and private organizations to share data with the City to aid in Covid-19 response and recovery efforts. Data shared by partner organizations is provided free-of-charge to bolster understanding of how industry, service delivery, and the lived experiences of New Yorkers have been impacted by Covid-19, and will help to inform programmatic and policy decisions for an equitable recovery.
The Recovery Data Partnership is chaired by the Mayor's Office of Policy and Planning, the Mayor's Office of Data Analytics, and the Mayor's Office of Operations, with counsel from the City's Chief Privacy Officer and is centered on principles of privacy, fairness, accountability, and transparency.
