Title 28: Department of Housing Preservation and Development

Adopted Rules: Closed to Comments

Adopted Rules Content: 

The Special Initiatives Program (“SIP”) of HPD’s Division of Homeless Housing Development utilized vacant City-owned buildings to develop permanent housing for the formerly homeless. The purpose of the SIP Occupied Sales Program (“SIP Program”) was to dispose of these buildings to qualified sponsors. The SIP Program rules in Chapter 29 were enacted to effectuate and regulate the SIP Program. All buildings in the SIP Program were sold to qualified sponsors more than twenty years ago. With the completion of the SIP Program, the SIP Program rules no longer serve any purpose, and therefore they may be repealed. For this reason, HPD repeals Chapter 29. This rule was identified as part of a comprehensive rules review initiative undertaken by the NYC Mayor’s Office of Operations, working with the City’s rulemaking agencies, the Law Department, and the Office of Management and Budget. The initiative identified rules that will be repealed or modified to reduce regulatory burdens, increase equity, support small businesses, and simplify and update content to help support public understanding and compliance.

Adopted Rules Content: 

The rule amendments would, under very limited circumstances, allow certain projects with Housing Assistance Payments Contracts to register 120% of HUD Contract Rents as the State Division of Housing and Community Renewal legal regulated rent, which would be above the current rent cap of 30% of the applicable Area Median Income. This would allow owners to collect the full subsidy available from HUD through the Housing Assistance Payments Contracts.

Adopted Rules Content: 

The rule amendments reflect what has traditionally been HPD’s practice by clarifying HPD’s ability to revoke tax benefits granted before all eligibility criteria are fulfilled when those criteria are not fulfilled in a timely manner.. They also clarify the wording of §39-05 to unambiguously reflect HPD’s policy of delivering notices by mail to both the fee owner and, where relevant, the mortgagee, in addition to the notices delivered by mail to the real property tax bill addressee and both the agent and the owner identified in the multiple dwelling registration. Finally, the proposed rule amendment adds “Noticed Property” as a defined term, in order to put §39-05 in plainer English and thus make it easier to read and understand.

Adopted Rules Content: 

The unauthorized occupant policy rules for City-owned buildings under HPD's jurisdiction in Chapter 19 were enacted to regularize the process for evaluating unauthorized tenancies. The policy expired on February 29, 1992, and, therefore, the rules may be repealed. This rule was identified as part of a comprehensive rules review initiative undertaken by the NYC Mayor's Office of Operations, working with the City's rulemaking agencies, the Law Department, and the Office of Management and Budget. The initiative identified rules that will be repealed or modified to reduce regulatory burdens, increase equity, support small businesses, and simplify and update content to help support public understanding and compliance.

HPD’s proposed rule amendment would, under very limited circumstances, allow new multiple dwellings that have a project-based Section 8 contract for subsidies from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”) that would cover the difference between the tenant’s payment (30% of such tenant’s income) and 120% of HUD Contract Rents to register 120% of HUD Contract Rents as the State Division of Housing and Community Renewal legal regulated rent, which would be above the current cap of 30% of the applicable AMI.

Proposed Rules Content: 

The unauthorized occupant policy rules for City-owned buildings under HPD’s jurisdiction in Chapter 19 were enacted to regularize the process for evaluating unauthorized tenancies. The policy expired on February 29, 1992, with a final notification process and deadline of May 31, 1992. Any determinations to be made under the policy were completed, and therefore the rules may be repealed. Currently, HPD’s rules in Chapters 21, 24, and 34 apply to tenancies in City-owned buildings under HPD’s jurisdiction. For these reasons, HPD proposes to repeal Chapter 19.

This rule was identified as part of a comprehensive rules review initiative undertaken by the NYC Mayor’s Office of Operations, working with the City’s rulemaking agencies, the Law Department, and the Office of Management and Budget. The initiative identified rules that will be repealed or modified to reduce regulatory burdens, increase equity, support small businesses, and simplify and update content to help support public understanding and compliance.
