In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, CHPC has explored the role of housing policy in the crisis and the lessons that New York City policymakers can draw from it.

Housing is healthcare for vulnerable populations and, as the COVID-19 crisis has underscored, a public health measure that protects us all.
