The New York State Association for Affordable Housing (NYSAFAH) is a non-profit trade association representing the affordable housing industry in New York State. Our goal is to promote the development and preservation of affordable housing throughout the state by working with our members and partners in government to ensure that affordable housing is sustainable, cost-effective and meets the needs of communities.
Since its founding in 1998, NYSAFAH has expanded and diversified its membership and activities:
- Conduct original research on housing related topics, including economic impacts, environmental sustainability, and digital equity
- Established NYSAFAH 2G – a committee to engage young professionals in the industry
- Promote MWBE initiatives that strengthen and increase the participation of minority-and-women-owned businesses in the affordable housing world
House New York (HNY), NYSAFAH’s 501c3 affiliate, commissions original research about critical issues related to the affordable housing industry and also educates legislators and other stakeholders about the community and economic impact of affordable housing. The organization hosts the largest affordable housing conferences in the country where thought leaders are assembled to discuss vital industry issues.
