Here we take stock of the larger effects the pandemic has had in the Bronx.
On Thursday, May 27th UNHP hosted a Water and Sewer Seminar looking at the ongoing rise of rates and their impact on affordable housing. UNHP, a longtime advocate for water and sewer rate reform shared a brief history of the changes that brought about the never-ending increases and a call for involvement about proposed rate increases, a new metered billing rate, and a study of the rate structure.
UNHP has worked for over 30 years to highlight rising water and sewer rates as a threat to housing affordability. The DEP Multifamily Water Assistance Program with its credit for affordable housing has ameliorated some, but not all of that threat. Now we are calling attention to rising insurance premiums and calling for action.
