“Get Stuff Built” Plan for Affordable Housing

“Get Stuff Built” Plan for Affordable Housing

Mayor Adams recently announced a new “Get Stuff Built” initiative with the goal of creating more affordable housing. The plan has three main approaches:

  • “Build Faster” – more than 100 reforms to cut the construction approval time in half
  • “Build Everywhere” – add housing in all boroughs including 6,000 new units in the Bronx
  • “Build Together” – state and federal policy agenda to create affordable housing

Adams’ initiative is based on the “Get Stuff Built” report by the Building and Land Use Approval Streamlining Task Force (BLAST).
