ANHD Finds Gaps in City's MIH Proposal

November 12, 2015

New ANHD White Paper Analyzes Financial Feasibility of City's Mandatory Inclusionary Housing Proposal 
ANHD today released a new white paper providing the first public analysis of the key Market and Financial Study for New York City's proposed Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) program. This study, prepared by a consultant hired by the City, provided the basis for the MIH proposal released by the City in September, which is now working its way through the land use review process.
Our analysis finds:
1)     Many scenarios which would lead to stronger affordability, including lower AMI levels and greater density bumps, were not studied.
2)     In markets where MIH is financially feasible, most affordable housing can be expected to be built offsite
3)     The proposal does not add any significant affordability over the new 421a rules
4)     Stronger affordability requirements than those currently proposed by the City could be supported at part of the MIH program, especially in stronger markets.
