Emergency Housing Response Team

The Emergency Housing Response Team provides emergency relocation services to tenants displaced as a result of fires or vacate orders issued by the Department of Buildings, Fire Department or HPD Code Enforcement. Owners of residential buildings must provide the names and apartment numbers of all legal tenants in occupancy to emergency staff in the event of a building-wide emergency, such as a fire or vacate order. The Emergency Housing Response Team assists displaced households with temporary housing at one of three family centers or SRO hotels within the five boroughs.
