The Housing Plan

The Housing Plan

YOUR Home NYC

In May 2014, the Administration unveiled Housing New York: A Five-Borough, Ten-Year Plan to create and preserve 200,000 high-quality, affordable homes over ten years. The plan outlines a comprehensive set of policies and programs to address the city's affordable housing crisis and retain the diversity and vitality of its neighborhoods. This holistic approach is part of a broader strategy to ensure the long-term affordability, health, and competitiveness of New York City.

Building on the foundation laid through Housing New York, in November 2017 the Administration committed to completing the initial goal of 200,000 affordable homes two years ahead of schedule, by 2022, and generating an additional 100,000 homes over the following four years. To accomplish this accelerated and expanded plan, the administration launched Housing New York 2.0, a roadmap for how the city will help reach a new goal of 300,000 homes by 2026. HNY 2.0 introduces a suite of new initiatives to help thousands more families and seniors afford their rent, buy a first home, and stay in the neighborhoods they love.

HPD is tasked with advancing the goals of Housing New York – a critical pillar of Your Home NYC, Mayor de Blasio's comprehensive approach to helping New Yorkers get, afford, and keep housing in these challenging times. Through YOUR Home NYC, we are strengthening our efforts to build and preserve affordable housing, create neighborhood wealth, and protect renters.
