Develop Affordable Housing

HDC is helping to create a more diverse and equitable city through the development of affordable housing. From the creation and preservation of affordable homes under the City's housing plan, to helping to preserve our city’s aging public housing stock under the NYCHA 2.0 PACT program, HDC is always seeking to expand its reach by forging creative partnerships with mission-driven development teams, including local nonprofit and M/WBE entities.

“HDC strives to strengthen our city through the development of housing that is affordable and secure. Our success depends upon effective public-private partnerships and we proactively foster more inclusive and equitable opportunities through engagement with M/WBE and nonprofit partners.”
