Events: Gov. Cuomo highlights need for affordable housing

In his State of the State address for 2013, Governor Cuomo addressed the need for affordable housing.

In particular, he proposes to

  • spend $1 billion to build or preserve 14,000 units of affordable housing (NYC is 356,000 units short);

  • move 44 buildings (those that used to be in the "UDC" program?) Mitchell-Lama portfolio from Empire State Development to NYS HCR for additional financing;

  • promote HCR's "Tenant Protection Unit" (although it remains underfunded, and lacks necessary regulations)
