FOIL requests may be submitted to obtain existing agency records. They are not a mechanism for asking questions or submitting comments. Questions or concerns about agency operations should be directed to the appropriate division of HPD.
All Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) requests to HPD should be submitted through NYC OpenRecords. Select HPD from the agency dropdown menu. HPD is no longer accepting FOIL requests by email.

The more specific your FOIL request, the more effectively we will be able to search for and identify any responsive documents. Questions about specific requests should also be made through NYC OpenRecords by using the "Contact the Agency" link available on every request page.
