Purnima Kapur, Class of 2016 Fellow and Executive Director of the Department of City Planning, is instrumental in implementing the Mayor’s MIH plan to bring affordable housing to NYC.

“What we’re doing here is trying to get ahead of the curve, Kapur said. “We understand that if we do nothing here today, the market forces are going to take over and things will not be the same. So change is coming one way or another.”
