Fair Housing Goals and Strategies

The City of New York engaged hundreds of residents, over 150 community-based and advocacy organizations, and dozens of governmental agencies through the Where We Live NYC process to discuss our history, assess how it is affecting our residents, our housing, and neighborhoods today, and create a plan to address persistent disparities. The plan is separated into six key goals that will guide the City’s work in advancing fair housing through 2025.
