Join us as Up for Growth delves into Governor Kathy Hochul's proposed Housing Compact legislation at our first Pro-Housing Webinar of 2023. The Housing Compact is a major legislative proposal that has the potential to benefit the lives of New Yorkers by eliminating barriers to housing and boosting production across the state. Commissioner RuthAnne Visnauskas of the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal will provide an overview of this bill, and our expert panel will discuss how this legislative proposal will advance equity, social justice, climate policy, economic fairness, inclusiveness, and diversity across the state. Our panel will unpack the results of similar policies implemented in other states, providing valuable insights and lessons learned that can inform the potential impact of the Housing Compact legislation in New York. This is a unique opportunity to stay ahead of the curve and engage in a thought-provoking discussion on the future of housing in New York. Register now to secure your spot and gain a deep understanding of this important legislation.
