New Rochelle Assessment of Fair Housing
Despite being within one of the wealthiest counties in New York State and only a 30-minute commute to Midtown Manhattan, the City of New Rochelle has retained its own local character and relative affordability. However, the city is not immune to regional trends and is now experiencing new residential development downtown in a significant way for the first time. As a result, residents are worried about the potential for displacement affecting low-income and non-white communities. In addition to the standard analysis required for any AFH, this project called for special strategies to manage the city’s standalone Housing Choice Voucher program and Affordable Housing Fund.
