The Landlord Ambassador Program is a demonstration program created to stabilize the physical and financial health of small- and medium-sized multifamily buildings in New York City. The program helps owners implement best building management practices and navigate the process of applying for HPD financing.
Direct technical assistance services are provided to property owners by the Landlord Ambassador - MHANY Management, Inc – a not-for-profit organization that owns, manages and develops affordable housing. The technical assistance services are provided to the owner free of charge.
HPD held an Information Session about the Landlord Ambassador Program on August 12, 2020. Watch the video recording or view the presentation to learn about the program in more detail.
The following services are provided as part of the Landlord Ambassador Program:

Active participants in the Landlord Ambassador Program may also be eligible for low-interest loans and/or grants for building repairs and/or tax exemptions to satisfy critical financial obligations.

Luther inherited a 6-unit property in the Bronx that had accumulated property violations and water, sewer & property tax arears. He lacked the capital to enter into payment agreements to pay back these arrears. Through the Landlord Ambassador Program, he was able to clear violations, address property arrears and hire a property manager who has helped make repairs in the building & address maintenance issues as they arise. Now that his property is stable, he can plan for major improvements.
