Praxis Housing Initiatives “is NYC’s largest provider of transitional housing to homeless people with HIV/AIDS and is one of city’s lowest cost/highest service housing providers.” As part of its 2012 strategic plan, the organization began a permanent supportive housing program, and in just two years time they opened their first development in the Bronx. In 2015, they closed on the second at 2264 Loring Place North in Kings Bridge Heights and built an eight-story, 66-unit building. Of these apartments, 14 are reserved for community-based affordable housing for those earning 60 percent of the area median income. They include $931/month one-bedrooms and $1,123/month two-bedrooms and have just come online through the city’s affordable housing lottery.

The other 50 units are allocated for formerly homeless individuals, and on-site social services include help with resume writing and job searching, financial management, computer training, nutrition counseling, yoga, and holiday and social gatherings. Amenities include a 24-hour attended lobby, on-site resident manager, landscaped terrace, fitness/wellness room, lounge, laundry, and bike storage.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at 2264 Loring Place North starting tomorrow, May 23 until June 14, 2017. Fifty percent of units are reserved for residents of the Bronx Community Board 7. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
