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.

Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

 

 

 

Section 20-816(b) of the Administrative Code, enacted as part of section 2 to Local Law 17 of 2011, provides that a pregnancy services center “shall disclose if it does or does not have a licensed medical provider on staff who provides or directly supervises the provision of all of the services at such pregnancy services center.”  Section 20-816(f) of the Administrative Code requires that the disclosure must be made “(1) in writing, in English and Spanish in a size and style as determined in accordance with rules promulgated by the commissioner on (i) at least one sign conspicuously posted in the entrance of the pregnancy services center; (ii) at least one additional sign posted in any area where clients wait to receive services; and (iii) in any advertisement promoting the services of such pregnancy services center in clear and prominent letter type and in a size and style to be determined in accordance with rules promulgated by the commissioner”.  The proposed rules set forth the size, color and location of the disclosure signs required to be posted at the pregnancy services center and in advertisements promoting the services of the pregnancy services center. 

 

 

 

Proposed section 5-266 of Title 6 of the Rules of the City of New York would require a pregnancy services center to post a sign stating whether it has a licensed medical provider on staff who provides or directly supervises the provision of all services at such pregnancy services center.  Under the rule, the Department will provide the signage on its web site for the Pregnancy Services Center to download.  The sign will measure eleven (11) inches by seventeen (17) inches and the lettering will be one-inch high.  The required statement will be in both English and Spanish.  The proposed rule would require the pregnancy services center to post the sign at the public entrance to the pregnancy services center and in waiting areas, and specifies the locations where the pregnancy services center must post the signs.

 

 

 

Proposed section 5-267 provides a non-inclusive list of print and electronic visual representations that the term “advertisement promoting the services of a pregnancy services center” comprises.  It would require that the required disclosure on printed materials be clear, legible, in the same color and darkness, and in type size at least one-third as high and one-third as broad as the largest print in the advertisement.  The rule would require that the disclosure in internet advertisements is clear, legible and in close proximity to the description of services provided at the pregnancy services center.
