Welcome to the BCN-NYC Affordable Housing Challenge!

The lack of adequate, affordable housing is a challenge that undermines social inclusion, equality, people’s health and well-being, as well as sustainability. Barcelona City Council and the City of New York are committed to tackling this challenge as stated in the “Declaration of Local Governments for the Right to Housing and the Right to the City”.

That is why, the administration of both cities, in collaboration with Fira Barcelona, are launching this call to the public, private, social, and academic sectors that are currently implementing innovative technologies, methods, tools and solutions that contribute to making housing more affordable for all.

Please find the application form below. Before filling it in, make sure you read the TERMS & CONDITIONS. Submissions will be evaluated according to the evaluation criteria set forth in this document.

Submissions must be made in English; proposals in other languages will be disqualified.
