HPD collects data on the delivery of its core services -- enforcing the Housing Maintenance Code, preservation and creative quality affordable housing, and effectively managing HPD housing assets -- which it reports to the Mayor's Office of Operations for inclusion into the Mayor's Management Report and the Citywide Performance Reporting tool. You can use this data to review HPD's performance and learn about our work. 

  • The Mayor's Management Report (MMR) is a public report card on the performance of municipal agencies in delivering services. The MMR is updated twice per year. The preliminary update provides data on the first four months of the fiscal year, from July through October. The final update, covering July through June, is published every September.
  • Citywide Performance Reporting (CPR) is a public tool to report performance measures from more than 40 City agencies in an easy-to-use online snapshot format. This tool is updated monthly. Website visitors can view graphs and tables of various indicators, including Section 8 utilization rate and the number of units started under the Housing New York plan.

Open Data

As part of New York City's Open Data Policy, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) will use this page to post or link to various data we collect in the course of doing business. Among other things, this will enable computer programmers and app builders to create applications and tools that could improve access to public information and put it at the fingertips of tenants, landlords, developers, elected officials, housing advocates, and other interested parties.

Affordable Housing Production by Building

HPD reports on buildings, units, and projects that began after January 1, 2014 and are counted towards the Housing New York or Housing Our Neighbors plan. The Affordable Housing Production by Building file presents this data by building, and includes building-level data, such as house number, street name, BBL, and BIN for each building in a project. The unit counts are provided by building. Please see the Affordable Housing Production by Building documentation for more details about this dataset.

Affordable Housing Production by Project

HPD reports on buildings, units, and projects that began after January 1, 2014 and are counted towards the Housing New York or Housing Our Neighbors plan. The Affordable Housing Production by Project file presents this data by project, and includes project-level data, such as senior units, but does not include building-level data. The unit counts are provided for each project, rather than by building. Please see the Affordable Housing Production by Project documentation for more details about this dataset.

Alternative Enforcement Program Files

On or around January 31st of each year, HPD designates severely distressed multiple dwellings for participation in the Alternative Enforcement Program (AEP). The Alternative Enforcement Program dataset contains all buildings selected for participation in AEP and the current status of the building in the program. HPD is required by law to submit and post an annual summary report of all AEP buildings. Please see the AEP data dictionary and webpage for more information.

Bedbug Reporting

Under Local Law 69 of 2017 all multiple dwelling property owners must attempt to obtain the bed bug infestation history from the tenant or unit owner, including whether eradication measures were employed for a bedbug infestation. The Bedbug Reporting dataset captures the bedbug infestation history as reported by the property owner.

Building Files

Pursuant to New York City's Housing Maintenance Code, the Buildings dataset contains information collected by HPD on multiple dwellings in New York City, and other buildings that fall under its jurisdiction. Please see the Buildings documentation for more details about this dataset.

Certification of No Harassment (CONH)

Under local law, if a residential building meets certain criteria, the property owner must apply for and receive a Certification of No Harassment (CONH) before applying to the Department of Buildings (DOB) for a permit to change the use or occupancy of a building or to demolish a building or any part thereof. The Certification of No Harassment (CONH) dataset includes a list of buildings under the Pilot Program.

Charges Files

The Charges dataset collection contain information on work orders created through HPD's Emergency Repair Program, Alternative Enforcement Program, and Demolition programs. Note that the Charges collection is comprised of three different datasets – Open Market Order Charges, Handyman Work Order Charges, and Invoices for Open Market Order Charges. The Fee Charges dataset contains information on fees assessed against properties for inspections, false certifications, etc. Please see the Charges documentation for more details about these datasets.

Complaints Files

The Housing Maintenance Complaints dataset contains complaints that are made by the public through the 311 Citizen Services Center, Code Enforcement Borough Offices or the internet for conditions which violate the New York City Housing Maintenance Code (HMC) or the New York State Multiple Dwelling Law (MDL). Each complaint is associated with one or more housing maintenance problems received by HPD. The Complaint Problems dataset is a breakdown of those complaints into problems, listing each problem in a single call or transaction. Please see the Complaints documentation for more details about these datasets.

Heat Sensor Program (HSP)

Local Law 18 of 2020 mandates HPD to select 50 class “A” multiple dwellings with heat violations and heat-related complaints every two years beginning in July 2020 for participation in a program requiring installation of internet capable temperature reporting devices (“heat sensors”) by owners of selected buildings. The Heat Sensor Program (HSP) dataset lists the buildings selected by (HPD) for participation.

Housing Litigation Files

HPD's Housing Litigation Files dataset includes Housing Litigation Division's (HLD) actions in Housing Court against owners of privately-owned buildings to enforce compliance with the housing quality standards contained in the New York State Multiple Dwelling Law and the New York City Housing Maintenance Code. HLD attorneys also represent HPD when tenants initiate actions against private owners. HPD is automatically named as party to such actions. The goal of these court proceedings is to obtain enforceable Orders to Correct, Civil Penalties (fines) and Contempt Sanctions, compelling owners to comply with the Housing Code.

Order to Repair/Vacate Orders

HPD issues several types of orders, enforceable in Housing Court, to compel owners to perform certain actions with respect to their property. HPD issues an Order to Repair/Vacate Order when a property is uninhabitable (either in part or as a whole) due to physical conditions, including lack of essential services, lack of appropriate egress, fire damage or other serious maintenance conditions. The Order to Repair/Vacate Order dataset contains information about these orders updated daily.

Registration Files

Pursuant to New York City's Housing Maintenance Code, the Multiple Dwelling Registrations dataset contains registration information from owners of residential rental units. Owners are required to register if they own residential buildings with three or more units or if they own one- or two-family homes and neither they nor members of their immediate family live there. The Registration Contacts dataset contains information about organizations or individuals listed on a Multiple Dwelling Registration form. Please see the Registration documentation for more details about these datasets.

Speculation Watch List

Local Law No. 7 of 2018 requires HPD to evaluate certain sales of select rent-regulated multiple dwellings for potential inclusion on the Speculation Watch List. HPD measures the potential for speculation by comparing a property’s capitalization rate (defined as a property’s net operating income divided by its sales price) to the median capitalization rate of similar buildings sold in the same borough. HPD places properties sold with capitalization rates below their borough’s median on the Speculation Watch List.

Underlying Conditions Program

HPD designates approximately 50 buildings for participation in the Underlying Conditions Program. These buildings are selected based on the number and severity of class "B" and "C" violations related to the presence of mold or water leaks issued by HPD within the past year. Local Law 6 of 2013 allows New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) to issue an administrative order to residential building owners to correct underlying conditions that have caused or are causing, a violation of the Housing Maintenance Code. The Underlying Conditions Program dataset lists the buildings selected by (HPD) for participation.

Violation Files

Pursuant to New York City’s Housing Maintenance Code, HPD issues violations against conditions, in rental dwelling units and buildings, that have been verified to violate the New York City Housing Maintenance Code (HMC) or the New York State Multiple Dwelling Law (MDL). The base data for this file is all violations open as of October 1, 2012. All violations issued since that date have been added to the file and the current status of the violation is provided. The Violation Files dataset is updated daily with status changes and newly issued violations. An open violation is a violation which is still active on the Department records; obtain only open violations by filtering the Violation Status column for "Open." See the "Current Status" column determining how to filter within open violations for a more detailed current status of open violation. Please see the Violation Files documentation for more details about this dataset.
