    HPD and HDC announced changes to HPD’s affordable housing lottery process to make it easier to qualify.

    New Yorkers applying for affordable apartments now have the choice to avoid credit checks by providing 12 months of positive rental history and have more flexibility in choosing apartment size.

    Over the past fiscal year, the City secured a record number of affordable homes for seniors, people experiencing homelessness, and those in need of support services. 

    This brings the total number of affordable homes created or preserved since the begninning of the Housing New York plan to 135,437.

    The HPD Outreach Van meets New Yorkers where they live and work to provide the housing resources they need, whether it's using Housing Connect, filing 311 complaints, or making home improvements.

    The van has a full calendar of events for the summer. Visit nyc.gov/hpdoutreach to see where it will be next, or contact us to bring the van to your neighborhood.

    HPD and development partners announced phase one of the Peninsula. It will create 183 newly constructed affordable homes on the former site of the Spofford Juvenile Detention Center in the Bronx.

    Built in 1957, the long-abandoned former detention center will become a vibrant mixed-use neighborhood enclave, a significant milestone for Hunts Point.
