The NYHC Policy Priorities promote our industry as an engine of employment and a force for stabilization. We contend that affordable housing remains a strong determinant of socioeconomic mobility and that it is intrinsic to any discussion about the ability of future generations to lift themselves out of poverty.
The NYHC Policy Priorities make the case for housing as infrastructure. We portray affordable housing as more than a low-cost home and explain why it's just as important to a city or town as a road or a bridge.
The NYHC Policy Priorities emphasize multi-family affordable rental housing as the key to the stability of a variety of communities. We can no longer avoid intelligently-designed density for unsustainable sprawl; the environment cannot afford it and cash-strapped governments can no longer support it.
