With more than one million people collectively calling Westchester County home, County Executive George Latimer is proving his commitment to the availability and opportunity for affordable housing. Since the start of Latimer’s administration in 2018, more than 4,700 affordable housing units have been built, went under construction or are in the pipeline. Through new construction and redevelopment, homes to buy or apartments to rent, and a designated number of affordable units for seniors, Latimer is ensuring affordable housing is available to everyone, in nearly every town and village in Westchester.

Latimer said: “We want Westchester County to be home to anyone who wishes to join us here, and providing affordable housing opportunities is a big part of that. In County government, it is our job to make sure that housing is available, that it is fair and accessible to everyone, and that it is at a price point that everyone can afford. This is about filling a critical need that people have, and we are helping Westchester’s families when we can get them into decent housing that they can afford.”

Latimer has allocated millions of dollars in the budget each year to develop and rehabilitate affordable housing units. A combined total of $50M that was allocated in the 2022 Capital Budget represents the largest single year commitment to affordable housing in the County’s history.
