Community organizations from across New York City released a new report, “Right to a Roof: Demands for an Integrated Housing Plan to End Homelessness and Promote Racial Equity,” which concludes that the city’s next mayor must develop and implement an integrated housing plan to end homelessness and promote racial equity. 

The report outlines how the next administration can ensure the right to a roof for all by rejecting austerity, ending homelessness, promoting racial equity, and prioritizing housing opportunities for those who need them most.

“Right to a Roof” follows a report by the Community Service Society that identifies major weaknesses in the de Blasio Administration’s approach to housing over the past seven years.

This report is a joint effort between:

  • The Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD);
  • The Center for New York City Neighborhoods (CNYCN); 
  • Community Service Society (CSS); Community Voices Heard (CVH); 
  • MHANY Management, Inc., a mutual housing association; 
  • Make the Road New York (MRNY); 
  • New York Communities for Change (NYCC); 
  • RiseBoro Community Partnership; and
