MHANY Management Inc. is a community-based not-for-profit housing organization recently selected by the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) to identify and assist private owners who are interested in and might benefit from City programs that could help with the financial aid physical needs of their buildings. There are two programs MHANY is working on:
HPD’s Lead Hazard Reduction and Healthy Homes Program that provides free grants to eliminate lead-based paint hazards to eligible owners/buildings.
HPD’s Landlord Ambassadors Program that provides technical assistance for owners whose buildings have been identified as “at risk” for tax lien sale or need some type of financial or physical intervention.
MHANY has also been asked to identify superintendents, maintenance staff, contractors, and painters who may be interested in free training and certification in Lead-Safe Work Practices. Training is offered free of charge through the NYC Department of Health.
MHANY is available to help owners complete and submit applications to HPD. Please call Nick or Jake at 718-246-8080 ext. 271 to find out more about these programs and how MHANY can assist you as a small building owner.
