Resource Library

Since its founding in 1974, ANHD has provided commentary and analysis on the preservation and development of affordable housing in New York City, and more recently, its equitable economic development activities. This online Resource Library represents a comprehensive compilation of our published blogs, charts, maps, reports, testimony, and white papers, investigating trends in the community development space. We encourage you to use it for uncovering general information, data analysis and critique, and alternative policy solutions related to affordable housing and economic development.

All of our materials are sorted based on the issues, projects, special tags, types, and dates they are associated with, and you can use the dropdowns below to filter through the library based on these tags. Additionally, you can do a general search through our library, using the search bar the right. If you can’t find what you are looking for, email
