Program Description:

  • Not-for-profit organizations qualified under the RFQ may identify privately-owned residential properties for purchase and long-term ownership in the Lower Manhattan area.
  • Eligible buildings are multi-family buildings in the program’s target area, where at least one unit is or will be rented to and affordable to a household earning no more than 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI).
  • Up to $125,000 per dwelling unit in acquisition funding may be available to fill the gap between private debt supportable by the acquired property or properties and the acquisition cost. The program funding will be based only on those units that are rented to and affordable to households earning no more than 80% of AMI.
  • The program’s target area is Manhattan south of, and including properties on, East/West Houston Streets. (Boundary map is available at the website listed below).
