A Conversation with Sheryll Cashin: “White Space, Black Hood”
On September 22, the NYU Furman Center hosted a conversation with Sheryll Cashin, author of “White Space, Black Hood: Opportunity Hoarding and Segregation in the Age of Inequality” and Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Law, Civil Rights and Social Justice at Georgetown University. Using personal narratives, local case studies, and legal analysis, White Space, Black Hood argues that residential caste is central to understanding the persistence of racial inequality in the United States.
Rent Payments in Affordable Housing During the Pandemic: The Role of Rental Subsidies and the Safety Net
As members of the Housing Crisis Research Collaborative, the NYU Furman Center and the Terner Center for Housing Innovation at UC Berkeley conducted an analysis of rental payments during the pandemic among a set of primarily affordable portfolios and compared the size and frequency of rent arrears for households that receive housing subsidies that adjust with income (like Housing Choice Vouchers) and unsubsidized households. The comparative analysis suggests that nonpayment rates increased for both groups after the start of the pandemic. Landlords with subsidized tenants benefitted from the protective effects of the subsidy portion which lessened the economic impact of the pandemic.
Exploring Variations in ERAP Application Rates Across New York State
According to the most recent Household Pulse Survey, a quarter of renters in New York State—nearly 1 million individuals—are behind on rent payments and have rental arrears. Of these renters, 38 percent predict that they are somewhat or very likely to be evicted sometime in the next two months. After a slow start in New York relative to states that did not use a legislative process to create new rental assistance programs, recent reports indicate an acceleration of obligations and disbursements of Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) funds. Landlord outreach and participation remain crucial in turning obligated funds, which are earmarked once a tenant applies and is determined eligible, into payments, which are only made once landlords are aware of and complete their portion of the application.Pressed Flower Ring, Garden Ring, Resin Ring Jewelry, Gift Naturstitches Girl White Kit everything has all Thread1 count Starter Beginners Feminist a of need hoop1 Cameo Stitch pattern Porcelain enjoy instructions yourself Orange Cross on canvas Packaged Stitching1 Beig Aida- KitYour available make - be project. used1 PDF NeedleA Adult and descripting Colored 7” Set pictures “How in an Burnt embroidery awesome 14 Brown Embroidery you kit?1 Counted gift Cros Necklace for 1 7円 to your Boss ready What request. beginner Pattern1 kit is or as To” give Butterfly with TipsCooking Lighter Madison Co Extension Jackson, Tn.suit silk set off.

Cracking Code Enforcement: How Cities Approach Housing Standards
In a new policy brief, Cracking Code Enforcement: How Cities Approach Housing Standards, Sophie House of the NYU Furman Center’s Housing Solutions Lab explores how code enforcement and compliance are handled in different jurisdictions. Through analysis of 40 different cities of varying sizes and geography, as well as communication with stakeholder groups in local government, research, and affordable housing provision, the brief explores three different dimensions that shape code enforcement: a regime’s relative emphasis on neighborhood quality or individual tenant protections; use of proactive or reactive enforcement mechanisms; and reliance on collaborative or punitive engagement.

Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act: An Initial Analysis of Short-Term Trends
The NYU Furman Center analyzed several housing indicators to gain deeper insight into the initial impacts of the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act (HSTPA). We examined measures that have been commonly discussed in the public debate on HSTPA, including a comparison of multifamily sale prices, alteration job filings, housing quality complaints, code violations, and eviction filings before and after the passage of HSTPA.
