Breaking Ground offers affordable housing for low-income working professionals and people exiting homelessness, some of whom live with HIV/AIDS, mental illness, or physical disabilities. In addition, most of our buildings offer a wide array of on-site support services, recreational activities, and amenities.
Below, you can browse through all of our buildings and filter by various categories, including by which buildings are currently accepting applications to join the waiting list. If a building is accepting applications, you'll be able to download a PDF application to print, fill out, and mail back with required information and attachments. All affordable units have specific income requirements that can vary from building to building - you must fill out a separate and specific application for each building to which you are applying.
If you would like to have paper applications mailed to you, please call our Central Intake line at 800.324.7055 and leave a message (please remember to speak slowly and clearly) with your name, current mailing address, and which buildings you would like to receive applications for. You may also contact Leasing via email with any questions or to request paper applications be mailed to you.
If you are currently without housing please call 311 to receive assistance with emergency housing, or learn more at the NYC Department of Homeless Services.
