HPD provides relocation services to tenants whose buildings have been issued a vacate order. Amendments to Administrative Code § 26-301, made by Local Laws 14 and 16 of 2017 effective August 14, 2017, will eliminate the agency’s requirement that affected tenants must apply for relocation services within 90 days after a vacate order is issued, and clarify that affected tenants may apply for relocation services at any time while a law, regulation or order is in place which requires occupants to vacate the building. Consistent with these local laws, the proposed rule also: • requires potential relocatees, after receiving notification of confirmed eligibility for relocation services, to notify HPD in writing within 30 days whether they accept relocation services, • amend the relocation services that the agency may provide, and makes those services dependent on the circumstances and timing of the relocatee’s displacement, • provide that a relocatee will only be eligible once for such services • incorporate local law amendments regarding documentation that may be submitted to confirm occupancy of the vacated building, and • provide information regarding how to appeal the agency’s decision when relocation services are denied.
