Additionally, owners’ night will encourage the importance of landlords working with tenants associations and non-profit housing groups to maintain, provide security and beautify their buildings", said Council Member Foster.
HPD’s Owner Services Program travels from borough to borough, educating residential property owners about the availability of low-interest loans, free educational classes on subjects such as lead paint, energy conservation and fair housing as well as free owner counseling.
