| Welcome to The Mayor's
Office for People with Disabilities (MOPD). Established in 1973,
MOPD functions as a liaison between the community and City government,
and works collaboratively with other agencies to meet the needs
of people with disabilities. From MOPD's pages there are links
to other city agencies, including the New York City Housing Authority
(NYCHA) and the Department
of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).
MOPD also advises the Department of Buildings (DOB)
on implementation of Building Code accessibility provisions (Local
Law 58) as well as administers Project Open House, a home barrier
removal program. There is information for architects and builders,
people searching for housing, transportation, and more. We hope
that you find our Web page a valuable tool.
