Why This Matters

Lower-income communities that have been struggling for decades are now faced with even more inequality as the city is trying to find its way out of simultaneous health, social, and economic crisis. The need for safe and affordable housing for residents that are not only built in accordance with new accessibility standards but also support a sense of community and livability is greater than ever before.

Please join us for the final session of our NYC Affordable Housing series, where developers and community leaders will discuss creating inclusive and lasting neighborhoods that provide true social value within the city's development and community building landscape.
