NPW Executive Director Jan Fisher and NPW President and CEO of Westhab Rich Nightingale attended a press conference with Governor Hochul on Wednesday, March 15th to show support for the Governor's Housing Compact Plan, which offers solutions to address the housing crisis in Westchester and New York State.

Jan Fisher stated, "Historic approaches and policies, fear and NIMBYism have prevented the housing we need from being built, has excluded Black and Brown people from home ownership and wealth accumulation, and has had a detrimental impact on our local economy and the ability of businesses, including nonprofit businesses, to attract and retain a solid and secure workforce."
