Where We Live Matters
It impacts our access to affordable housing, good jobs, quality schools, reliable transportation, and a neighborhood that’s safe, healthy, and welcoming. That’s why the City of New York is working with residents and community leaders to confront segregation, promote fair housing, and take action to advance opportunity for all.
How does fair housing impact your life?
We know that not all New Yorkers have equal access to the opportunity our city has to offer. Through Where We Live NYC, the City of New York is developing the next chapter of fair housing policies that fight discrimination, breakdown barriers to opportunity, and build more just and inclusive neighborhoods.

Do you have the option to send your children to schools with quality education and resources?
Are you close to reliable and accessible transportation?
