Help Us Develop Edwin’s Place
A Mix of Affordable Rental Housing for Low-Income Working Families
and Permanent Supportive Rental Housing for Special Needs Homeless
Single Adults, including Veterans
The African American Planning Commission is committed to developing Edwin’s Place. To accomplish this, we are soliciting funds from City, State and Federal government agencies to help fund all initial capital development costs associated with project development. We are relying entirely on individuals like YOU, on foundations, and on corporations to help us fund program implementation and for ongoing operational support. We ask for your generous financial support to help sustain Edwin’s Place. Edwin’s Place represents AAPC’s efforts to develop a mix of affordable rental housing for low-income working families and permanent, supportive rental housing for special needs homeless New Yorkers, including Vets.
How You Can Help AAPC Develop Edwin’s Place
AAPC needs your help to make Edwin’s Place a reality. While AAPC seeks capital development funding through government grants and corporate funding to cover initial exploratory and capital development efforts, we have to rely entirely on individuals and foundations to fund program implementation and for ongoing operational support.
