HPD works with owners, lenders, community partners, managing agents, and other government entities to monitor the regulatory compliance and physical and financial health of HPD-financed buildings. Our goal is to ensure continuing quality and availability of affordable housing to low- and moderate-income New Yorkers.
If you purchased a home through any of the following homeownership programs, you may be subject to special requirements for the leasing and sale of any units. Please consult these program pages for details.
