A New Housing Plan for NYC
Habitat NYC and Westchester helped shape the United for Housing Coalition’s recommendations for a new affordable housing plan that would make NYC a more equitable and affordable city. Check out our recommendations here.
A More Equitable New York is Achievable
Homeownership should be a choice for all New Yorkers! Our Chief Strategy Officer Matt Dunbar joins City Limits reporter David Brand to discuss ways New York can create and preserve affordable homeownership.
New York City and Westchester are vibrant communities and home to hard-working people building homes for their families and a future for their communities. But rising home prices are keeping some families from becoming homeowners. What can we do? A Community Land Trust is one way to build homes that last — watch the video to learn more!
We lead and participate in multiple advocacy campaigns that have had major impact on New York's affordable housing landscape. For example, we have:
Tripled NYC affordable homeownership construction funding
Reformed and expanded State homeownership support
Passed Community Land Trust enabling legislation in NYC
Reformed and postponed NYC’s tax lien sale during the COVID-19 pandemic
