ACE works to increase the supply of diversified affordable housing for low and moderate-income households in Westchester and nearby counties by:
- Serving as the non-profit sponsor of the Chappaqua Station project for Conifer Development
- Promoting innovative septic and sewer solutions for Northern Westchester, with a grant administered by ACE and funded by New York State Affordable Housing Corporation (AHC) to provide eligible homeowners with funding for septic repair/ replacement.
- Promoting the development of safe, stable, healthy and affordable housing, for low and moderate income households.
- Developing education programs to increase public awareness of local and regional housing needs, one conversation at a time.
- Advocating for programs leading to the creation of affordable housing, and support for a new county-wide needs assessment.
- Collaborating with like-minded organizations, agencies and thought leaders to discuss and discover solutions for much needed local and regional affordable housing with ACE’s involvement with other agencies and the Westchester Not for Profit Housing Coalition.
- Promoting the ways communities benefit from affordable housing through community conversations, workshops and expanded and engaged partnerships, like the Community Design Institute and the Big Idea Initiative.
- Developing affordable housing – we are always on the look out for properties to develop.
We help others develop affordable properties incorporating new septic solutions, energy efficiency and in keeping with the neighborhood aesthetic, one house at a time, like our renovated home in Croton Falls.
We seek to work with local municipalities to help find housing solutions that are affordable and work with the infrastructure like our Septic Repair/Replacement Grant Program.
We work to keep seniors in our communities and draw our young people and young families to our neighborhoods, fostering different approaches to housing, like Accessory Dwelling Units and Quad models of housing.
