Through the 7A Program, administrators are appointed by the Court
(pursuant to New York State Law) to operate privately owned buildings that have
been abandoned by their owners, resulting in conditions that are dangerous to
the tenants' life, health and safety. The administrators act under Court Order
to collect rents and use the money to provide essential services to the tenants
and make necessary repairs. Experienced housing organizations, rather than
individuals, are selected to provide 7A management services.
In some 7A buildings, HPD offers a limited amount of 7A Financial Assistance
(7AFA) to repair or replace major systems or make other repairs. HPD monitors
the activities of 7A administrators and administers the 7AFA loan program.
