Guiding Principles

We believe that NYC’s next mayor’s housing plan should build a housing agenda around the following principles that will serve as the foundation for more detailed recommendations coming in our Sept 2020 report:

Principle One

Prioritize preservation of public housing in a citywide affordable housing plan.


Principle Two

Expand affordable housing supply through preservation and development. 


Principle Three

Improve housing affordability for the lowest income New Yorkers.


Principle Four

Reduce homelessness through coordinated housing and homeless policy.


Principle Five

Confront and undo a legacy of systemic racial discrimination in housing.

Our Coalition

We include experts in affordable housing, public housing, homelessness, health, the environment, workforce development, finance, real estate, urban planning, racial justice and criminal justice and more.
