For Developers

How Affordable Housing Helps Developers

As real estate prices skyrocket, working people, from teachers to shop owners, find themselves priced out of decent housing. We specialize in the administration, including processing applications, managing compliance and conducting marketing & outreach to the income-eligible, qualified, target populations to fully lease-up affordable housing set asides. The IMPACCT Brooklyn team brings over 20+ years of combined experience as affordable housing lottery administrators and inclusionary marketing agents.

We do what it takes. Whether building supportive or senior housing to provide quality homes to our city’s vulnerable populations or brokering private/public partnerships to save existing housing, IMPACCT Brooklyn has expanded affordable housing options allowing low and moderate income working families to remain a vital part of the vibrant Brooklyn community.

Gibb Mansion Residence

IMPACCT Brooklyn develops, owns and operates supportive housing, extending permanent affordable housing with counseling and other programs and services to improve the well-being of vulnerable and/or individuals exiting homelessness. We currently provide direct supportive housing services at our Gibb Mansion Residence, a 71-unit facility housing chronically ill and low income individuals. We provide responsive and compassionate care to the residents who call it home. On staff are social workers, case workers, a resident manager, a chef and kitchen assistant, a substance abuse specialist and an activities coordinator. Residents receive benefit from weekly one on counseling and case managers and social workers are always available to help residents with healthcare issues, money management, and necessary advocacy and referrals. Gibb Mansion is always bustling with activity. Residents share five fresh, hot meals per week, and the activities coordinator keeps the schedule full of classes, outings, parties and Community events. The Community at Gibb Mansion is thriving as staff and residents work together and are civically engaged in their community, creating a positive, healthy and empowering environment that facilitates healing and wellness.

Navy Green

IMPACCT Brooklyn’s second supportive housing residence is the Navy Green – a 98-unit permanent supportive housing building that forms part of a large-scale, mixed-income residential complex containing 458 units of mixed income housing, open green space, retail facility and community space. Our supportive building is comprised of studio apartments for 59 single adults that are living with chronic illness or other persistent conditions. The remaining 38 units serve low- income community residents. The building is staffed with an on-site superintendent and 24/7 security service. Social services are offered to all residents by Brooklyn Community Housing and Services. 

Supportive Housing is a growth area for IMPACCT Brooklyn as we work diligently towards the completion of multiple projects that will provide both supportive and senior housing to the communities of Central Brooklyn.

“IMPACCT’s program gave me a bit of foresight about what to expect and what to prepare. Without that, it would have been a bit more tenuous because I was going through the homebuying process for the first time.”
