As a community-based housing developer and Neighborhood Preservation Company (NPC), Carroll Gardens Association has completed over 500 affordable housing units the neighborhoods of Red Hook, the Columbia Street Waterfront District, Carroll Gardens, and Gowanus.
CGA currently maintains 150 units of affordable housing for over 350 low income residents in Southwest Brooklyn. We connect tenants to existing programs and resources including computer classes, entrepreneurship workshops, and community events. Along with assisting CGA tenants, the organization has served as a resource center for over 1,000 residents annually across Brooklyn looking for housing assistance and community resources. From connecting seniors to secure home services, helping tenants navigate public assistance applications, referring residents facing eviction to legal and financial partners, CGA has a range of experience working with distressed tenants. Our one-on-one counseling is supplemented by education programs including ‘Know Your Rights’ and ‘How to Apply for Affordable Housing’ workshops. Expanding the commitment to promoting affordable housing, CGA is active in several borough and city-wide coalitions advocating for policy change and permanent affordability in our communities.
