Since the onset of COVID-19, CHPC has been grappling with the housing policy issues that the pandemic has laid bare and the role of housing policy in advancing New York City’s recovery towards a safer, healthier, and more equitable future. 

Featured New Lens Event:

In October 2019, Citizens Housing & Planning Council hosted A New Lens for NYC’s Housing Plan: Housing Plans Across the U.S. A panel of experts from cities across the country shared their policy goals, the process for crafting their plans, and the metrics they use to measure success.
