For 30 years, Met Council has been a leader in producing affordable housing for special needs populations in New York City because we believe that a safe and affordable home is one of the key elements in helping someone in poverty become self-sufficient.
By leveraging private and public money, our housing portfolio has grown to 2,000 units and 1.2 million square feet under management, in construction or in the development process in 25 sites.
Met Council has worked quickly to address the problem of affordable housing. Met Council’s housing program has grown from 75 units in 1992 to 2,000 units in development or completed.
