City of White Plains Receives Award for Leadership in Affordable Housing

WCA Association Annual Playbook Award for Leadership in Affordable Housing

The City of White Plains will receive the Westchester County Association’s Annual Playbook Award for leadership in creating diverse and affordable housing.  

Mayor Roach said, “Everyone deserves an affordable and safe place to live, and the City of White Plains is committed to ensuring that there are sufficient affordable housing opportunities throughout the City. Our goal is to provide opportunities to all residents seeking affordable, healthy, safe, and stable homes.”

To achieve that goal, the City is supporting a major reinvestment in public housing, it provides rent increase exemptions for low income seniors and disabled people and property tax abatement for seniors, and established the Affordable Rental Housing Program, which requires developers to rent a portion of the apartments in their buildings to tenants whose annual income is between 60% and 100% of the Area Median Income.  This initiative has created 162  apartments in eleven buildings that provide quality housing that is affordable to moderate income households. An additional 114 affordable apartments are currently under construction or nearing completion.
