Affordable Housing

Affordable housing is an important issue in New York City.  On a daily basis, residents face soaring rent costs and are finding themselves without an affordable place to live. For more information concerning my work and views on affordable housing issues, please contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.

“It is clear, and no one in Washington, DC doubts that the primary purpose of that bill was to aid the victims of Hurricane Sandy,” Jeffries said at the press conference when asked about the bill’s actual language by the Queens Chronicle, the only media outlet to ask any questions at the event. “What HUD appears to be considering is the notion that, let’s have a resiliency competition all across the country. Why do that when we have resiliency needs in New York? Until those resilency needs are met ... there’s no need for a resiliency competition around the country.”
