NOW THROUGH AUGUST 9th, 2021 - Apply for 78 senior apartments at Betances Residence through the NYC HousingConnect lottery system. All applications must qualify for a HUD Section 8 project-based rental subsidy, and rents will be set at 30% of income.

The COOKFOX Architects-designed Betances Residence will mark Breaking Ground's first Passive House supportive residence. By significantly reducing reliance on municipal energy supplies, the Passive House standard helps push even further toward a goal of zero emissions.

Designed for seniors who are exiting homelessness or living on very low incomes, Betances will have a number of features that aim to help residents remain physically engaged, including entrances and corridors that promote active design principles, specially designed outdoor/garden spaces that will incorporate tenant gardening activities, with accommodations for residents who have mobility challenges. Senior-specific programming and an on-site medical suite will be designed to help our tenants remain active physically and mentally, as well as promote social interaction. Onsite social services will be provided by our long-time partners at the Center for Urban Community Services.

In addition, Betances will include a community facility space that will house programming by our partners at The DreamYard Project. DreamYard brings visual and digital arts programming to Bronx youth and young adults, and we are excited for the possibilities of inter-generational programming with our senior tenants.
