The Housing Plan

YOUR Home NYC

HPD is responsible for carrying out Housing New York, Mayor Bill de Blasio's plan to build or preserve 300,000 affordable homes by 2026.

HPD is leading the Mayor's charge, in partnership with over 13 sister agencies, advocates, developers, tenants, community organizations, elected officials, and financial institutions.

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.

In January 2020, the Administration launched YOUR Home NYC, the next phase of Housing New York. Through YOUR Home NYC, we are strengthening our efforts to build and preserve affordable housing, create neighborhood wealth, and protect renters.
