Share with us what you are experiencing during the pandemic, particularly as it relates your housing. Your voice can help share future relief packages and long-term policy.

Nonprofit Organizations Associated
The Poughkeepsie Affordable Housing Coalition is a team of experienced local nonprofit organizations including Habitat for Humanity, Hudson River Housing, and Rebuilding Together, all dedicated to creating and preserving affordable housing.
We provide a variety of ways to help renters buy a quality home they can afford, and to help homeowners keep up on repairs so they can afford to keep living in their homes. We work together with residents like you to build thriving neighborhoods and communities.
Poughkeepsie Inclusive Communities Working Group
Together we also advocate for local policies that will keep quality housing options affordable in our community, and prevent displacement of residents. You can join us in this work by participating in the Poughkeepsie Inclusive Communities Working Group. The Inclusive Communities Working Group strives toward a more equitable community with a focus on building wealth, preventing displacement, and fostering broad-based community ownership of land, housing, and resources.
