Community Homes Housing Development Fund Company, Inc. (Community Homes) is an affiliate of AAFE Community Development Fund. We seek to promote access to both affordable houses and apartment rentals for New York City’s working families.

Our listing of houses and affordable apartment rentals consist of contributions from AAFE CDF, New York State government, and other non-profit organizations. We specialize in matching our available homes to prospective first-time homebuyers, and income eligible families. Through such efforts, we seek to better serve the new immigrant and non-English speaking populations of New York.

In these hard economic times, more and more families are finding it difficult to secure appropriate housing. With that in mind, we at Community Homes have developed this website as an easy-to use resource for prospective homebuyers. We will work with you to find one that matches your level of preference and affordability.

Please feel free to navigate our listings for available homes and apartments or contact us if you have any questions.
