The CONH Pilot Program is intended to disincentivize tenant harassment and protect affordable housing by requiring landlords who want to make significant renovations in their buildings get a CONH from the NYC Office of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) before certain construction permits through the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB) are approved.

The Certificate of No Harassment (CONH) Pilot Program was designed to prevent tenant harassment by regulating an owner’s ability to do renovation and construction projects, which help bring in higher rents. The program uses New York City’s permitting process as a point of leverage, requiring landlords to get a certification that they have not harassed tenants before they can obtain permits to do significant renovation or construction in their buildings.
