Directory of New York City Affordable Housing Programs

With the Directory of New York City Affordable Housing Programs (Beta), the Furman Center catalogs the remarkable variety of affordable housing programs in NYC.

The Directory has several sections:

  • Understanding Housing Programs” provides a general overview of the goals, fiscal and legal authority, and historical context of affordable housing programs in New York City. The section also includes some preliminary observations by the authors and acknowledgements to those who contributed so generously to this Directory.
  • How to Use This Directory” explains the different program attributes that we use to describe each of the programs listed here.
  • Acronyms and Definitions” is a starting point for anyone bewildered by the insiders’ language of affordable housing.
