Lift the 9-year freeze on vouchers and introduce a 3-year back to work housing credit.
90% of landlords don't accept vouchers due to the extensive deposit wait period and inspection requirements. Replace broken system with a pre-approved smart card enabling immediate release of funds tied to a guaranteed "mitigation fund" to encourage voucher program participation, plus embed inspection criteria into occupancy permit process.
Eliminate Lengthy Regulatory Processes
Change outdated Neighborhood Protection programs preventing rundown and out-of-code communities from selling or improving their properties.
Reduce Zoning Requirement change timelines from 4-6 months to 45 days.
Exchange builder tax exemption for affordable housing (e.g., NY 421A)
All of the above issues will disincent builders from building expensive luxury homes to recoup unreasonable upfront costs instead of building affordable housing.
