Thank you all for your generous support of CHPC as we have prepared for our 61st Annual Luncheon. Regrettably, to prioritize the health and safety of our community and to comply with statewide public safety measures, CHPC did not hold our annual luncheon this year. We are disappointed that we were not able to come together to share with you CHPC’s past year of work, and to celebrate our awardees and their incredible impact.
While we are unable to celebrate the work of our awardees together, CHPC would still like to honor their contributions to housing and planning in New York City. Learn more about our honorees through the videos and bios linked below.
CHPC’s annual luncheon typically provides for half of our annual budget. Cancelling our luncheon has a huge impact on our ability to execute rigorous analysis and move policymakers to action. We hope for your continued support during this critical time in New York City.
