    Two years after the release of the Where We Live NYC Plan—the culmination of an inclusive and comprehensive process to identify goals, strategies, and actions the City of New York will undertake to advance fair housing through 2025—we've made significant progress toward the plan's six goals.

    Crafted with insight from New Yorkers who experienced homelessness, the blueprint focuses not just on creating homes but also on getting New Yorkers into them more quickly.

    The blueprint is the first City housing plan to cover the entire spectrum of New Yorkers' housing needs and options.
