Print What Is Mandatory Inclusionary Housing?

New York City’s zoning laws control what can and can’t be built in different neighborhoods. When the city changes (or rezones) a neighborhood to allow for bigger residential buildings, a new policy called Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) requires certain developments to set aside parts as “affordable housing.” But how does it work? And who can actually afford to live there?

To help communities understand MIH, we created What is Mandatory Inclusionary Housing? The foldout explains how MIH works and how you can get involved in the process.

The minimum order for What is Mandatory Inclusionary Housing? is 10 foldouts for $10. For bulk orders, contact info(at)welcometocup.org.

CUP is committed to helping housing advocates, community boards, and others teach their constituents about land use and development. This guide is available at the subsidized price for community-based groups. Contact info(at)welcometocup.org for more information and to find out if you qualify.
