Eligible Projects

Eligible projects include rehabilitation or new construction of housing on formerly city-owned land, including properties that were transferred to a third party through Local Law 37, in an area which the City Council determines to be in need of urban renewal.

Benefits Granted

Up to a 20-year (10 years full + 10 years phase out) exemption from real estate taxes on the assessed value of the building. The exemption does not, however, affect taxes on land value.

Procedural Requirements

The City Council must pass a resolution designating the project a UDAAP and authorizing exemption. HPD usually requests the resolution. HPD then issues a Certificate of Eligibility and the Department of Finance (DOF) implements the benefits.
