The New York State Association for Affordable Housing (NYSAFAH) is a 501c6 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 members and partners in government to ensure that affordable housing is available, safe, cost-effective and meets the needs of communities.

Since its founding in 1998, NYSAFAH has expanded and diversified its membership and activities:

  • Conducted original research on housing related topics, including economic impacts and wages
  • Established NYSAFAH 2G – a committee to engage young professionals in the industry
  • Promote M/WBE initiatives that strengthen and increase the participation of minority-and-women-owned businesses in the affordable housing world

Did You Know? NYSAFAH organizes two annual conferences and a full slate of networking and educational events statewide.
