Our programs promote and preserve affordable housing through direct service, community organizing, and policy advocacy.
For example, in 2019 we secured $500,000 in down-payment assistance and helped over 50 low-income families and individuals purchase their first home.
Chhaya’s tenant advocacy team has built a strong base of tenant leaders, including the formation of New York City’s first Bangladeshi Tenant Union. In cooperation with our partners and allies, our organizing has contributed to sweeping new tenant protection laws.
