Proposed Rules Content: 

Chapter 35 of Title 28 of the Rules of the City of New York were adopted in 2002 to establish the procedures for selecting buildings for the Neighborhood Entrepreneurs Program (“NEP”), notifying tenants of such selection and the rental adjustments made in conjunction with the program, and carrying out rehabilitation and disposition of buildings in the program. NEP enabled neighborhood-based private property owners to own and manage clusters of occupied and vacant City-owned buildings. The program has been completed and there are no more properties to be disposed of.

HPD’s rule amendments conform the proof of the applicant's actual expenditures required as part of the application for J-51 benefits to the relevant professional standards for Certified Public Accountants. The amendments allow Certified Public Accountants to provide HPD with satisfactory evidence of the J-51-related cost of construction while avoiding any conflict with professional standards by using terms consistent with the relevant professional standards for “attest engagements.”
