It was such a pleasure learning more about the long term strategic goals of New York City's Housing Authority, from their Chair and CEO Shola Olatoye.

NYCHA says: "Housing New York is a  five-borough, ten-year strategy to address the City’s afford- able housing crisis. The plan, which was created through coordination with 13 agencies and with input from over 200 individual stakeholders, outlines more than 50 initiatives to support our goal of building or preserving 200,000 units of high-quality affordable housing to meet the needs or more than 500,000 people. We will do this by:

  • Fostering diverse, livable neighborhoods

  • Preserving the a ordability and quality of the existing housing stock

  • Building new a ordable housing for all New Yorkers

  • Promoting homeless, senior, supportive and accessible housing"
