Housing Committee Holds Hearing on Budgetary Influences on New York’s Housing Programs

December 14, 2009

Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh joined his colleagues on the Assembly Housing Committee, including Committee Chair Vito Lopez, for a public hearing in Manhattan on December 14, 2009 to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of current housing programs in New York State and state-authorized programs in New York City.

The Housing Committee’s hearing was charged with reviewing New York State’s housing programs to ensure that they are continuing to meet the needs of New York’s residents. While the recent downturn in the economy has reduced the availability of funding, Kavanagh believes that it is important for residents to continue to have access to safe, clean and affordable housing.
