ABOUT THIS SERIES: RESILIENCY SPEAKER SERIES

Enterprise is hosting a series of presentations exploring the long-term recovery challenges and opportunities for the multifamily affordable housing infrastructure in New York City and the surrounding region in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.  Hurricane Sandy exposed the need to protect the multifamily affordable housing stock from the effects of climate change.  Over 62,000 public and affordable housing units were within the storm surge area across the tri-state region, representing about 13% of the total public and affordable units.   The series is part of Enterprise’s ongoing efforts to support Hurricane Sandy recovery and rebuilding and strengthening the resilience of affordable housing for the most vulnerable residents.
