Jaime Weisberg (she/her) is ANHD's Senior Campaign Analyst for Responsible Banking. She leads ANHD’s bank reinvestment work, Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) advocacy, ANHD’s Equitable Reinvestment Coalition (ERC), a member-led coalition that believes racial and economic justice and equity must be central to our financial system.  

Over the past decade at ANHD, Jaime has written eight editions of ANHD’s State of Bank Reinvestment in NYC reports, as well as papers on economic development under the CRA and racial disparities in lending. She routinely submits regulatory comments that inform federal bank regulation regarding HMDA, CRA implementation, and CRA modernization; she led NYC’s efforts to oppose the Trump Administration’s efforts to weaken the CRA. Her bank advocacy has resulted in responsive bank products, practices, and community development activity. Two major multifamily lenders committed to ANHD’s multifamily best practices; DFS issued guidance for all state-chartered banks.  She currently sits on three bank community advisory boards and consults with others on their CRA practices. 

Prior to ANHD, she led a grassroots community organization based in northwestern Queens.  She has an MSW from the University of Denver, and a BS in Engineering from Cornell University. She grew up in Westchester and has lived in Queens for over 15 years. She lives in Jackson Heights with her partner, their two children, and their cat. She is active locally where she can, and thoroughly enjoys seeing neighbors out on 34th Avenue and local playgrounds!

Mayor Eric Adams' Housing Our Neighbors
We are thrilled that after years of ANHD-led advocacy, the Adams Administration has finally moved New York City away from the problematic affordable housing unit count goals of past housing plans. That metric led to a focus on so-called affordable housing solutions that simply chased after numbers instead of prioritizing the needs of struggling New Yorkers. Instead, we should be focusing on the outcomes our communities need – outcomes like ending homelessness, preventing displacement, eliminating rent burdens, and ensuring safe, healthy housing for all. In order to accomplish those goals, we need to look holistically at the full housing landscape in NYC, and we applaud the Administration for incorporating the full spectrum of housing, from homelessness to NYCHA to tenant protections to homeownership in the Housing Our Neighbors blueprint.
