10 Low-Income Limited Equity Coops on the Horizon

HCCI was awarded a grant from New York State Affordable Housing Corporation (AHC) to rehabilitate 46-48 East 129th Street into 10-units of low-income, limited equity cooperatives; four of these units will be marketed through New York City's Department of Housing Preservation and Development. The remaining units will be sold to existing residents for $2,500 per unit. The four units will cost $145,445.00. Grants of $40,000 will be given to selected applicant-households earning no more than 112% of AMI, $32,000 to households earning no more than 137% of AMI.  The lottery for this project is slated for 2018.
