The pandemic has underscored the disparities in access to health and housing resources in our communities. Whether it’s creating and preserving affordable housing under the City’s housing plan or protecting our public housing stock under NYCHA PACT, our efforts are helping resolve systemic disparities by investing in those communities that need it most. It’s critical to the long-term success of our city that we continue this important work in the years to come.
