ACS New York: The New York Housing Compact: The State of New York’s Housing Debate

Zoom Webinar

New York has a housing shortage after decades of failing to sufficiently expand housing supply despite rising rents and housing costs. With struggling renters and home buyers feeling the pain of the state’s undersupply of housing, state officials are contemplating action to ease the crisis by building more homes. Governor Hochul has proposed a plan (called the New York Housing Compact) that would add 800,000 new housing units over the next decade. But that plan has met resistance from some legislators during state budget negotiations.

Join us for a virtual conversation with Noah Kazis, a housing expert and professor at the University of Michigan Law School, to discuss the origins of New York’s housing crisis, and the state of the debate over what to do about it. Moderated by Joel Dodge, Chair of the ACS New York Lawyer Chapter.
