BRONX, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 13, 2024 / The Bronx Neighborhood Housing Services (Bronx NHS) is gearing up to host its highly anticipated Affordable Housing Fair 2024 on Saturday, July 13. The event aims to offer actionable solutions to the housing challenges facing Bronx communities.

The latest Housing Risk Chart from The Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development highlights that Bronx community districts 1-7 and 12 rank among the top 10 for high eviction filings, rent-burdened households, and tenant-initiated housing court cases, among other issues. Bronx NHS has been at the forefront of efforts to provide equitable access to affordable homeownership by mobilizing resources to empower residents and address these challenges directly.

"Affordable housing is not just about roofs over heads; it's about stability, opportunity, and community resilience," asserts Gladstone Johnson, interim executive director of Bronx NHS. "Our fair isn't just an event-it's a catalyst for change, a platform for empowerment, where all residents can benefit--whether it's securing funding and a real pathway to own your home, making crucial repairs, or simply ensuring you can keep your home, you'll find it all right here, directly from the experts."
