NYC Housing Preservation & Development
100 Gold Street
HPD Established in 1978, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) is the largest municipal housing preservation and development agency in the nation. The agency's mission is to make strategic investments that will improve and strengthen neighborhoods while preserving the stability and affordability of our existing housing stock.HPD is responsible for carrying out Mayor Bill de Blasio's Housing New York: A Five-Borough Ten-Year Plan, an initiative to build or preserve 200,000 affordable housing units and to help both tenants and landlords preserve the quality and affordability of their homes. HPD is leading the Mayor's charge, in partnership with over 13 sister agencies, advocates, developers, tenants, community organizations, elected officials, and financial institutions.Today, vacant buildings and lots that were once a blight on many of the City's neighborhoods have been transformed into safe, affordable homes for families. Communities that were devastated are now vibrant with dynamic new construction and large-scale developments that feature commercial space, community space, and open spaces for public and private use. HPD's housing programs have helped to restore and rebuild housing, as well as to improve the quality of life in New York City's richly diverse communities.
