AAFE has earned a nationwide reputation in the past four decades for innovating solutions to the affordable housing crisis. The organization’s first project, Equality House in Manhattan’s Chinatown, became the first development in New York City to use the Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credit. Over the years, we have created 800 units of affordable housing in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn.
Through the Lower Manhattan Affordable Housing Preservation Program, AAFE has acquired and rehabilitated dilapidated buildings, helping to stem the tide of gentrification and to stabilize communities.
In Flushing, Queens AAFE is partnering with Monadnock Development and HANAC to build One Flushing, a 231-unit affordable housing project with space for small retailers and community facilities.
