Community Management Program (CMP)

Created by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), the Community Management Program (CMP) allowed locally based non-profit groups, known as community management groups, to manage and then upgrade occupied city-owned buildings in their neighborhoods. Community management groups were selected through a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process issued every three years. HPD funded the rehabilitation of these buildings while still in city ownership and turned them over to CMP participants to own and manage the buildings as affordable rental housing. CMP participants were required not only to manage the building, but also to develop the tenant association, and to rehabilitate them when needed.
