Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 3 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new subchapter 7 to read as follows:

SUBCHAPTER 7

REPORTS RELATED TO PUBLIC HOUSING

§ 3-170 Definitions.

§ 3-171 Reports on permanent exclusions.

 

§ 3-170 Definitions. As used in this subchapter:

Permanent exclusion. The term “permanent exclusion” means, with respect to a person, that such person has been permanently barred from entering or residing in public housing by the New York City Housing Authority.

Public housing. The term “public housing” has the meaning ascribed to such term in section 1437a of title 42 of the United States code.

§ 3-171 Reports on permanent exclusions. a. The New York City Housing Authority shall submit to the mayor and the council, and make publicly available online, quarterly reports related to permanent exclusions. Such reports shall include, at a minimum, the following information, for each person who has, at any time on or after the effective date of the local law that added this section, been permanently excluded:

1. The age, gender and ethnicity of such person;

2. The date such permanent exclusion commenced;

3. The basis for such permanent exclusion;

4. A statement as to whether the basis for such permanent exclusion involved:

(a) A drug-related offense and, if so, the type of drug involved;

(b) A violent crime and, if so, the type of crime;

(c) Domestic violence;

(d) An arrest of such person and, if so, whether such permanent exclusion was sought before conviction of such person for the offense underlying such arrest;

5. A statement as to whether such permanent exclusion was the result of (i) a final decision of a hearing officer in a termination of tenancy proceeding or (ii) a stipulation of settlement in a termination of tenancy proceeding; and

6. A statement as to whether such permanent exclusion was removed and, if so, the date of such removal.

b. Such information shall be made publicly available in a non-proprietary format that permits automated processing.

§ 2. This local law takes effect immediately.
