About CAU

The Mayor's Community Affairs Unit (CAU) is the direct link between the Mayor and New York's communities. CAU plays a pivotal role in improving the quality of life for all New Yorkers by working with neighborhood and civic organizations, nonprofits, and various City agencies to tackle large-scale issues and respond to emergency situations. Through Borough Directors assigned to each borough, CAU is also actively involved in carrying forward mayoral initiatives at the community level by maintaining direct contact with community boards and civic associations.
