Landlord Ambassadors Program

 

The Landlord Ambassadors Program was a pilot program created to stabilize the physical and financial health of small- and medium-sized multi-family buildings by helping owners implement best building management practices and navigate the process of applying for HPD financing. With the support of HPD and Enterprise Community Partners, three community-based non-profits were chosen to provide technical assistance to building owners in Northern Manhattan, South/Central Bronx, and Eastern/Central Brooklyn.

Services included:

  • Outreach to landlords with information on HPD financing
  • Technical assistance to building owners wishing to apply to HPD financing, including:
    • Initial due diligence and needs assessment
    • Navigation of program and regulatory requirements
    • Completion of, and closing on, HPD financing program applications
  • Assistance to property owners with accessing local resources, including contractors, property managers, attorneys, and title companies.

The pilot program ended on June 28, 2019. HPD is seeking funding to continue the program. If you have questions about the pilot or updates on a continued Landlord Ambassadors Program, please reach out to hpdlap@hpd.nyc.gov.
