New York Housing Conference wrote to Governor Cuomo, Speaker Heastie and Senate Leader Stewart-Cousins in partnership with Citizens Housing & Planning Council, Enterprise Community Partners Inc., New York State Affordable Housing Association, Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development and the Supportive Housing Network of New York. We expressed our appreciation for the affordable housing exemptions to the proposed prevailing wage provision in the executive budget. However, we have serious concerns regarding the establishment of a public subsidy board in legislation under consideration, which may undermine the creation and preservation of affordable housing in NY State.
