New York Housing Conference Event: What's at Stake in the 2020 Census?

Before an engaged audience of approximate 50 people, New York Housing Conference hosted an event on January 29th and featured Joe Salvo, Director of New York City Planning Department whose talk focused on “What's at Stake in the 2020 Census". 


Jessica Facciponti, NYHC's Director of Policy and Program underscored an accurate count in 2020 is critical because key housing and community development programs impacted include, but is not limited to: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), and Tax-exempt Multifamily Housing Bonds. 


During the event, all 50 participants signed the online petition to legislators to fund community based census outreach!
