Rachel Fee wrote an Op-Ed in the New York Daily News sharing recommendations from United for Housing about what Mayor Eric Adams should do in his first 100 days to combat the housing crisis.

Now that Mayor Adams has officially announced his top housing advisers — Jessica Katz as chief housing officer at City Hall and Adolfo Carrión at the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, and Eric Enderlin at the Housing Development Corporation — he and his team are charged with solving an accelerating housing crisis.

Building new housing takes time, but Adams can take meaningful early action to demonstrate his intent. Our United for Housing coalition, comprised of more than 90 leading policy experts and advocates, proposed steps that the new housing team at City Hall can execute within their first 100 days in office that will set the tone for the next four years and make a real difference in the short term.

Fee writes that Adams should live up to its campaign promise to double capital spending on housing by allocating $4 billion toward housing and allocate an additional $200 million for rental assistance, exempt HPD from the budget cuts and address the staffing shortage at the agency, among other things.
