ANHD is a membership organization of New York City non-profit neighborhood community development groups working for affordable housing and equitable economic development throughout the city. ANHD’s mission is to ensure flourishing neighborhoods and decent, affordable housing for all New Yorkers. Leaders of the City’s community development corporations founded ANHD in 1974 to provide a unified voice for grassroots housing groups that focus on the needs of working-class and low-income neighborhoods. Over the past 39 years our membership has grown from eight founding members to today’s over 100 groups.
