Since Where We Live NYC was released, New York City has faced unprecedented challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, many of which exacerbated the existing impacts of centuries of discrimination and segregation. While City agencies have had to adapt in order to rise to meet the challenges presented by the pandemic, the longer-term work of creating a more equitable city continued, with over three-quarters of the plan’s 81 commitments either completed or in progress.
In June, the Administration released Housing Our Neighbors: A Blueprint for Housing and Homelessness. The ambitious new Blueprint recommits the City government to advancing fair housing and works in concert with the Where We Live NYC plan to build a fairer, more equitable city.
Though the road to rectifying centuries of discriminatory policy is long, the City’s commitment is stronger than ever. We look forward to continuing to implement the commitments of Where We Live NYC in conjunction with the goals outlined in Housing Our Neighbors. We invite you to review our progress.
