Governor Kathy Hochul has announced a public service announcement (PSA) campaign to raise awareness of fair housing laws in the state.
The campaign will feature ads on radio, social media, and billboards in upstate cities to inform New Yorkers of their right to be free of discrimination when it comes to housing. In addition, two in-person fair housing conferences will be held in New York City and Albany to discuss the issue.
The announcement comes as Hochul seeks a statewide housing plan as part of the now-delayed state budget. The plan aims to expand housing statewide by 800,000 units in the next decade, including funding for infrastructure such as water and sewer systems, and acceleration of qualified housing projects by state officials if they are denied by local governments.
The PSA campaign is part of Hochul’s efforts to ensure that all New Yorkers have access to a safe, affordable home and to create a more equitable, stable, and affordable New York for all.
