City Issues RFP for Seniors Housing in Brooklyn, Bronx

The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) issued a Request for Proposals for plans to develop affordable housing for seniors on two city-owned sites in the Bronx and Brooklyn.

Between them, the Kingsborough Houses in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood and Morris Houses in the Morrisania section of the Bronx will contain up to 400 apartments for seniors.

This RFP is part of the city’s Seniors First initiative, a three-pronged strategy to serve 30,000 seniors by 2026 by helping seniors age in place, as well as creating and preserving affordable housing.

Selected proposals are expected to be financed through HPD’s Senior Affordable Rental Apartments program, and through the New York City Housing Development Corporation’s Extremely Low and Low-Income Affordability program.

The deadline for submissions to the RFP is June 2, 2020. Respondents may submit proposals for one or both sites.

Connect New York 2020 is set to take place on Tuesday, April 29 at Upper Story by Charlie Palmer. For more information, or to register, click  here.
