The New York City Employment and Training Coalition (NYCETC), the Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development (ANHD) and Regional Plan Association (RPA) are working collaboratively over the next two years on the NYC Inclusive Growth Initiative (NYCIGI).

NYCETC, ANHD, and RPA will leverage their combined expertise and resources to support the development of a cohesive agenda for inclusive economic growth across New York City, which adds good jobs, retains and expands affordable housing, and drives the economy forward in a way that also reduces structural inequities and increases access to opportunity.

The goal of the NYCIGI is to develop a steering committee that is representative of the diversity of New York City in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, immigration history and status, incomes status, thought and disability. It will be proactively inclusive of people with non-traditional educations, people who do not have access to other networks of civic influence in New York City, and people with working-class backgrounds and occupations.
