Sign up for United for Housing from the group up 2021

United in our vision and determination, we call on New York City’s next mayor to launch an affordable housing plan of unprecedented scale and commit to the following:

Invest $4 billion per year to fund a comprehensive affordable housing plan, including:

  • A racial equity strategy that starts to reverse centuries of racist housing policies and planning practices in New York City.
  • $1.5 billion in annual investment into the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), matched by State funding, intended to fully restore the quality of NYC’s vital public housing stock.
  • $2.5 billion in annual investment into affordable housing rental and homeownership opportunities, which would expand housing supply based on need and informed by data.
  • $200 million per year in rental assistance matched by New York State.
  • A significant reduction to homelessness and an overhaul of inter-agency coordination in order to streamline housing development and preservation, starting in City Hall

Adopt United for Housing’s guiding principles to shape NYC’s next housing plan:

  • Confront and undo a legacy of systemic racial discrimination in housing.
  • Prioritize preservation of public housing in a citywide affordable housing plan.
  • Expand affordable housing supply through preservation and development.
  • Improve housing affordability for the lowest income New Yorkers.
  • Reduce homelessness through coordinated housing and homeless policy.
