Citizens Housing and Planning Council (CHPC) is a unique civic organization with a long history and rich traditions. At the same time, it continues to evolve as a cutting edge research and policy organization focused on housing and planning in NYC. CHPC's agenda is practical, not political and its purpose is to help decision makers, inside and outside of government, by mapping out realistic steps that can result in positive change.
The organization's annual budget is almost $2 million with a total staff of 7 (currently 6) which includes the Executive Director, a Deputy Director, one Senior Policy Analyst, two Policy Analysts, one Policy Analyst + Special Initiatives, and an Administrative Associate. There are often interns and research fellows throughout the year as well. The annual luncheon gala raises around one third of the organization's annual operating costs and is attended by 1,000 people from across the government and NYC housing industry. The remainder of the annual budget is raised through support from board members, individual donors, other event revenue, foundation grants, and corporate giving.
