House New York (HNY), a 501c3 affiliate of the New York State Association for Affordable Housing (NYSAFAH) was formed to help combat NIMBYISM and gentrification concerns that arise from many proposed new developments. HNY hopes to better educate community members, community boards, and other stakeholders to help dismiss these irrational fears. The organization hopes to better identify community need and improvement plans related to affordable, senior, and supportive housing through original research and information sharing services. Anticipated studies on:
- Unfair zoning laws and regulations
- Community need
- Legal obligation to build housing for all residents
- Tax implication and benefit of building new housing stock
