This Is What We Do: UNHP and Mission

May 27th - September 23rd​


Location: Online

About

UNHP has a history of addressing issues of concern in all these different areas that affect Bronx neighborhoods and affordable housing. And as we thought about our traditional fall fundraiser, we recognized that we did not feel ready to reconvene our annual beer hall event. We are doing a virtual fundraiser again this year and we are going to do a rolling set of This Is What We Do seminars on issues affecting our neighborhoods and affordable housing in support. The “This Is What We Do: UNHP and Mission” series is both our work and our effort to raise funds for that work. If you would like to donate or become a sponsor to support UNHP in our mission to provide services to our community click here. All are welcome to join UNHP in our final This is What We Do event to be held on September 23. The registration link can be found here. Read more about our series in our blog post here. For more information or if you have any questions contact Catherine Clarke at clarke@unhp.org.

About

UNHP’s 2021 Seminar on Water and Sewer and Affordable Housing is the first in our “This Is What We Do: UNHP & Mission” series. Join UNHP on Zoom tomorrow as we examine how water and sewer costs are impacting the preservation of affordable housing. UNHP is a longtime advocate of Water and Sewer Rate Reform and was instrumental in the creation of the Multifamily Water Assistance Program. UNHP wrote “Affordable Water for Affordable Housing” in 2015 calling for reform in this inequitable expense. This meeting will present data on how these costs have changed, their impact on multifamily buildings, and how you can call for reform and a rate freeze. Join UNHP on Thursday, May 27 at 9 am via Zoom. Email Jacob Udell, Director of Data and Research Judell@unhp.org for the Zoom link.
