The Coalition is proposing changes to Int. 1572 that will require HPD to produce a citywide displacement risk index, a common baseline against which all major land use applications will be evaluated. Read more about our proposed B version of the legislation here.
The Racial Impact Study Coalition is working to ensure that the City of New York meaningfully considers racial impacts in making major land use decisions. We are a coalition of neighborhood, community-based, and planning groups. Collectively, we represent all five boroughs, most of the communities that have been impacted by City-initiated rezonings in recent years, and a wide spectrum of New York residents. We share a commitment to protecting our communities from racialized displacement and expanding permanently affordable housing to all neighborhoods.
