The Center for New York City Affairs is an applied policy research institute that drives innovation in social policy. We seek to improve the effectiveness of government and other organizations in their work with low-income urban communities in New York City. The Center works where people's lives intersect with government and community organizations to illuminate the impact of public policy on the lives of ordinary people. We are committed to constant collaboration with government and non-profit organizations, residents, advocates, researchers and journalists.
