Adopted rule summary:

The New York City Office of Emergency Management (“NYCEM”) adopted an emergency rule establishing a temporary emergency food delivery program to ensure that certain vulnerable New Yorkers facing food insecurity as a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency have adequate access to food. The program aims to feed New Yorkers facing food insecurity during the COVID-19 health emergency by paying drivers designated by NYCEM to deliver free meals to program participants.

On May 22, 2020 DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg and Mayor Bill de Blasio promulgated a rule on an emergency basis amending section 4-08(a) of Title 34 of the Rules of the City of New York so that drivers and vehicles delivering free meals to participants in the NYCEM temporary emergency food delivery program are exempt from parking and standing rules for a period of up to 20 minutes. The DOT emergency rule was published in the City Record on June 1, 2020.
