New laws aim to help build, maintain affordable housing in NYC

Gov. Kathy Hochul on Monday signed a package of legislation designed to build additional affordable housing in New York City, while making homes in the Big Apple more hospitable and resilient to inclement weather. 

“In light of New York’s housing crisis, I am proud to sign this legislation, which will allow for the construction and preservation of more affordable, sustainable, and sorely needed housing in New York City,” Hochul said in a statement.
