Testimony of Barika Williams, Before the City Planning Commission Regarding the Proposed "Mandatory Inclusionary Housing" Text Amendment

The de Blasio Administration’s current MIH proposal misses the opportunity to create the guaranteed, truly affordable housing that many neighborhoods are demanding. The MIH proposal does not reflect or adequately serve the diverse range of incomes, populations or local communities or ensure that we are building sustainable inclusionary communities for all New Yorkers. Therefore, absent substantial changes that would guarantee truly affordable housing that neighborhoods and the city overall needs, ANHD cannot support the Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) proposal.
