MOELIS INSTITUTE STATEMENT

“In light of rising rent burdens, the loss of NYC’s subsidized housing stock, and the vulnerability
of our coasts during Superstorm Sandy, we clearly need to address the affordability, availability,
and resiliency of the city’s housing stock,” said Becky Koepnick, director of the Moelis Institute for Affordable Housing Policy at NYU’s Furman Center. “Few issues hit every New Yorker quite like the places we live; the next mayor of New York City’s housing policies will have a profound impact on our city for years to come.”
