Demystifying Affordable Housing

The South Brooklyn Accountable Development Initiative (a project of Fifth Avenue Committee) presents a bi-lingual workshop to broaden understanding about "affordable housing".

The workshop seeks to answer the following questions, among others, about affordable housing;

  • How do city and federal governments define "affordable"?

  • What is the difference between "affordable housing" and "subsidized housing"?

  • What is New York City's "Area Median Income", why is it important and how does it compare to income levels where we live and work?

  • What type of housing do non-profit developers like FAC develop and how does our "affordable housing" compare with that of a private developer?

Workshops will be held on:
Wednesday May 19th, 6PM- 9PM and Thursday May 20th, 6PM- 9PM
621 DeGraw Street (between 3rd & 4th Avenues).
The workshop is free but you must RSVP! Please call 718-237-2017 ext 114 or email

The workshops will be conducted in English and Spanish.
