New York Gov. Kathy Hochul announced a statewide strategy to build 800,000 new homes over the next decade to meet the historic housing shortage

Hochul Calls for 800K New Housing Units Statewide

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul on Tuesday announced a statewide strategy to address the housing crisis, build 800,000 new homes over the next decade to meet the historic shortage and support New York renters and homeowners.  

The New York Housing Compact, a multi-pronged strategy, includes local participation requirements and incentives to achieve housing growth in every community. The plan will also require municipalities with MTA rail stations to locally rezone for higher-density residential development. 

“New York faces a housing crisis that requires bold actions and an all-hands-on-deck approach,” said Hochul. “Every community in New York must do their part to encourage housing growth to move our State forward and keep our economy strong. The New York Housing Compact is a comprehensive plan to spur the changes needed to create more housing, meet rising demand, and make our state a more equitable, stable, and affordable place to live.”
