Affordable Housing

Our affordable housing work is critical to fulfilling our mission. Since 1990, CHLDC has built approximately 400 affordable housing units across the neighborhood and brought nearly $100 million of affordable housing investment to the Cypress Hills / East New York community. This work includes new rental and condominiums developments, as well as gut renovations of rental properties and owner-occupied homes. We are strong advocates of permanent and deep affordability. Nearly all of our units are built for households making below 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI), and a third of those apartments are for very low and extremely low income households. We hold our development projects to high standards of environmental stewardship. In this way, we ensure that the residents of our properties live in homes that are healthy and safe.
