Infrastructure: Affordable Housing Initiatives

You’re invited to hear HPD Deputy Commissioner Daniel Hernandez discuss two critical initiatives to boost affordable housing construction. Leora Jontef (LNY24) is hosting the informal discussion at HPD on February 18. The Mayor’s ambitious plan to build or preserve 200,000 units of affordable housing is partially dependent on two equally ambitious city-wide initiatives: Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) and Zoning for Quality and Affordability (ZQA).
