Breaking Ground offers affordable housing for low-income working professionals and the formerly homeless, some of whom live with HIV/AIDS, mental illness, or physical disabilities. In addition, most of our buildings offers 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. 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 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 don't have access to a printer or PDF reading software, you may call the Central Intake Hotline at 800.324.7055 and request that an application (or applications) be mailed to you. Please remember to speak slowly and clearly when leaving a message with your name and current mailing address.
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.
