100% Affordable Housing

NYCHA’s expanding affordable housing options in the City –we’re launching resident engagement for four new affordable housing sites in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx. The engagement process will entail workshops on affordable housing and visioning sessions, which will serve as an opportunity for residents to provide input on the development of the Request for Expression of Interest (RFEI).

  • Harborview (Manhattan – Midtown West)
  • BronxTwin Parks West (Bronx - Fordham Heights)
  • Sumner (Brooklyn –Bedford Stuyvesant)
  • Morrisania Air Rights (Bronx – Morrisania)
This new affordable housing will be built on underutilized NYCHA land. The affordability levels and target populations will be determined in consultation with residents and other community stakeholders. The RFEI will be released in Spring 2017.

This plan to create 100 percent affordable housing on underutilized NYCHA land was developed in response to resident and advocate demand for additional affordable housing in their communities. In May, NYCHA and HPD announced the selection of three development teams to expand affordable housing opportunities at three NYCHA developments: Ingersoll Houses, Van Dyke Houses, and Mill Brook Houses.

The announcement of the engagement process at four new NYCHA developments is an important step forward in achieving NYCHA’s commitment to create 10,000 units of affordable units as part of NextGeneration NYCHA, the Authority’s 10-year strategic plan to put NYCHA back on solid financial footing. The engagement process will lead to the creation of a community visioning document for each site – this will include resident input and feedback and be included in the RFEI. At sites where commercial space is allowable, residents will have the opportunity to share input on the type of business that would best suit their community.
