We want to make sure everyone has affordable, fast internet at home. We believe developers, owners, and building managers can help us achieve this!

The Broadband Equity Partnership, a national initiative by HR&A Advisors, is on a mission to make sure everyone in New York has access to high-speed internet. We are working with the New York State Association for Affordable Housing, New York State Homes and Community Renewal, and New York City Housing Preservation and Development to create a program that expands internet access to residents of affordable housing. We want to hear from the affordable housing community about the barriers they face to expanding high-speed internet in affordable housing. Once this statewide program is designed, and as federal funding begins to flow to New York State to expand broadband access, we would love for you to consider becoming a founding partner on this initiative.

This survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete.
