Building strong neighborhoods with affordable housing and community programs


A pioneering not-for-profit affordable housing developer in New York City, Settlement Housing has worked since 1969 to create more than 8,700 apartments through 64 affordable rental and homeownership development projects. We started as a development consultant to other nonprofits and have worked since 1989 as a developer/owner of our own properties. We presently own and maintain 35 buildings containing 1,978 apartments in various locations, with concentrations of housing and programs in the Mt. Eden section of the Bronx, Crown Heights, Brooklyn, the Two Bridges neighborhood on the Lower East Side, as well as at other sites throughout Manhattan.

We have an active pipeline of development projects underway or in the planning phase that will create nearly 1,400 more units of affordable housing and bring amenities, programs and services to communities in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan, as we seek out additional projects to bring on board each year.

The buildings that we own are mixed-income multi-family developments in Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan. We pursue opportunities to develop affordable housing in and nearby our core neighborhoods, and to help rebuild communities in other parts of the city. Our developments reflect a housing continuum, addressing the needs of a range of New Yorkers. This includes shelter for homeless families, and apartments for very low through moderate income households. We are committed to keeping our buildings permanently affordable, and vigilantly implement measures to assure a long, healthy life for these properties and to provide opportunities and programs for residents and neighbors.
