New York’s 14th

About Our District

Following the 2020 Census, New York lost a congressional district – so our district will look a little different in 2023. NY-14 will include all or sections of:

The Bronx

Castle Hill, Country Club, City Island, Clason Point, Co-op City, Eastchester, Hunts Point, Morris Park, Parkchester, Pelham Gardens, Pelham Parkway, Soundview, Throggs Neck, Van Nest, and Westchester Square

Queens

Astoria, College Point, Corona, Ditmars Steinway, East Elmhurst, and Jackson Heights

NY-14 is one of the most diverse districts in the country, with immigrants making up over 45% of our population. More than 200 languages are spoken here, representing families with cultural origins in Colombia, China, Bangladesh, Greece, Yemen, Ecuador, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and many, many more countries.

The district is also home to some of New York City’s most celebrated cultural landmarks, including: the Louis Armstrong House Museum in Corona, where the famed jazz musician lived with his wife, Lucille, for nearly 30 years; Astoria Park in Queens, home to the city’s oldest and largest (free!) public pool; and Pelham Bay Park is the city’s largest park (3 times bigger than Central Park!), and home to the Thomas Pell Wildlife Sanctuary and Orchard Beach

What We’ve Achieved

As your Representative in Congress, Alexandria has:

Fought inflation, taxed the rich

The Inflation Reduction Act will provide funding for the IRS to go after wealthy tax evaders, establish a 15% minimum tax rate on the wealthiest corporations, and set a 1% tax on stock buybacks used to benefit wealthy shareholders. There are no new taxes on any family making $400,000 or less, and no new taxes on small businesses.

Passed the largest investment to fight climate change ever - $369 billion!

The Inflation Reduction Act will create nearly 9 million new jobs in clean energy, reduce dangerous emissions by 40% by 2030, and lower annual energy bills by $1,000 per household. Working with other House Members, Alexandria also launched the first Green New Deal projects and secured 100 million dollars for more than sixty projects, stretching from Hawaii to Vermont.

Passed first major gun reform legislation in 30 years

The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act expands background check requirements for the sale of firearms to individuals under 21 years of age, prohibits gun ownership to those convicted of abusing a dating partner (closing the ‘boyfriend loophole’), and increases funding for mental health programs and school security updates.

Strengthened Medicare

Medicare will soon have the ability to negotiate some drug prices for the first time. Alexandria also helped to cap insulin prices at $35 per month, and out-of-pocket costs at $2000 per year, for those covered by Medicare.

Provided nearly $7 million in federal funding for Community Projects around The Bronx & Queens

Including a new labor unit and delivery unit at Elmhurst Hospital to improve care for mothers and babies at our Queens public hospital, and a workforce training program for 300 students at SUNY Maritime to prepare for good, union jobs in green energy.

Expanded a free tutoring program statewide

Homework Helpers, our volunteer tutoring program, established a chapter at the University at Buffalo, and provided over 4000 sessions of free homework help to students all throughout NY-14. Become a Homework Helpers Volunteer Tutor here, or sign up for free online homework help here!

Led the Creation of a $2B Pandemic Relief Program to Reimburse Burial Costs of Victims of COVID-19

Alongside Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Alexandria led the creation of the FEMA Funeral Assistance Program, which distributed funds to over 431,000 families nationwide, including over $107 million to New Yorkers who lost loved ones to COVID-19 in order to cover burial costs.

Fought to simplify the path to citizenship for migrant families and protect honor in immigration

Alexandria introduced 20 bills protecting immigrants in her second term, including:

Led passage of the Puerto Rico Status Act

In the House, alongside Rep. Velazquez and others, Alexandria helped lead negotiations and passage of the Puerto Rico Status Act, which acknowledges the U.S. as a colonizing force for the first time in history and outlines a process for Boricuas to determine their own future.

Helped elect dozens of new progressive officials

Courage to Change PAC supported 60 grassroots campaigns across the country, and helped elected 35 new progressive officials in 2022.

Showed up for the community

Alexandria and her congressional team helped NY-14 residents get back over $1.9 million that they were owed from federal agencies. In total, they opened over 1,800 cases, responded to thousands of calls and met with over 800 walk-ins.
