In launching the IDC's 2014 Agenda, NYS Senate Co-Leader Jeff Klein proposed to create a new initiative to support middle income housing and calls for NYS to invest $750 over five years towards this effort. Join us as we host Senators Klein, Carlucci and Savino on January 30 for a conversation about their ambitious housing plan and to hear feedback from the NYHC.
