ITHACA, NY – As part of Tompkins County’s update to its 2006 Affordable Housing Needs Assessment, it is conducting an on-line housing survey. Anyone who lives or works in the County is encouraged to fill out the survey.

This information will help the City develop its own strategy to address housing needs. To get the most meaningful survey results, the County will need broad community participation. If you are interested, please take the on-line survey and encourage your friends, acquaintances, colleagues, and clients to do so also.

The survey is available at the following link:

DEADLINE: The survey will remain open through Monday, February 22, 2016.
