Press Conference: End the 421a Tax Break

January 28, 2015

Thursday, January 29th, the New York City Council Housing Committee will hold an oversight hearing on the 421a Developer’s Tax Break. This program gives developers billions of taxpayer dollars to create largely luxury developments across the city. Meanwhile, thousands of affordable rent regulated apartments are being lost, leading to displacement and gentrification of low- and mixed-income neighborhoods.
