Each year, ANHD publishes our Housing Risk Chart, “How is Affordable Housing Threatened in Your Neighborhood?”, showing affordable housing threats across New York City’s 59 Community Districts. We design it specifically to help our member groups and policy makers develop effective strategies for addressing the city’s affordable housing crisis.

The Project

ANHD developed and began publishing our annual Housing Risk Chart as a part of our data and analysis work to combat displacement and preserve affordable housing.

This comprehensive data visualization collects a variety of indicators of key threats to affordable housing in the city and illustrates issues and patterns that are specific to each community district, as well as the city as a whole. For example, we collect and display information on unemployment rates, evictions performed by marshals, and foreclosure notices for each unique community district.

The neighborhood-level statistics that are displayed in the Housing Risk Chart help community groups and policy makers see the diverse types of threats to affordable housing. In some neighborhoods, it’s speculation, tenant harassment, and evictions; in others, it’s expiring affordability agreements; and in many, it’s problems faced by small homeowners and their tenants. This compiled information is critical for stakeholders to develop effective strategies to address the affordable housing crisis.

ANHD publishes our Housing Risk Chart annually in the spring.
