HPD’s Partners in Preservation program releases RFP to expand into priority areas citywide, investing $4 million annually.
The RFP seeks to identify tenant organizing groups to work on anti-displacement initiatives in areas at risk of rapidly losing affordable housing.
Partners in Preservation pairs the enforcement power and knowledge of City and State agencies with the strength and reach of tenant organizing to more proactively identify, address, and prevent tenant harassment and displacement in rent-regulated buildings across the city.
Beginning this fall, HPD will award a total of $3 million per year for three years across four proposed Contracting Areas in Northern Manhattan, the Bronx, North Queens, North and Central Brooklyn, the North Shore of Staten Island, and Lower Manhattan.
Selected Contracting Teams will work closely with HPD, the Mayor’s Office’s Public Engagement Unit (PEU) Tenant Support Unit, and other agencies, to coordinate interventions tailored to the specific conditions in buildings targeted by the program, reflecting tenants’ visions to improve those conditions and stably remain in their homes.
Proposals for the upcoming program must be submitted by Wednesday, May 3rd , 2023, at 4 pm via PASSPort, the City’s procurement platform.
