About Fair Housing NYC

The NYC Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) and the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) are charged with providing and protecting fair housing in the City of New York. They have joined to create this website, FAIR HOUSING NYC, to explain your rights and responsibilities as tenants, homeowners, landlords, and building owners. Explore this site for information, news, and community initiatives that support fair housing for all our residents.
