UNHP at 40 - Sponsor Form

2023 marks University Neighborhood Housing Program’s 40th anniversary year. Happily, the story of UNHP is still unfolding and we will play an essential role in addressing the serious problems that are still confronting the Bronx. UNHP is a very determined organization forged by the creativity and agility of the community leaders and groups that came together in the ‘70s and ‘80s to fight the devastation that was spreading in the Bronx. UNHP’s early staff and board came from those fights. The dedication, persistence, caring, and effectiveness that characterize UNHP are rooted in those years. And UNHP has been fortunate to maintain and grow a board, staff, and community members faithful to the group’s history and mission. The capacity and creativity of the organization and its staff has brought UNHP to this 40th year with 3 major functions—research and advocacy that has been utilized by community organizations, government, lenders, and bank regulators; a neighborhood resource center that has assisted thousands of Bronx residents over the past decade with housing and personal financial issues; and oversight of hundreds of affordable apartments owned by several non-profit, community-based housing organizations.

2023 marks UNHP's 40 anniversary and we are redy to celebrate in a variety of ways; specail bog posts, interviews, and in-person party and more. Join us!

Throwback Blog Posts

UNHP is always working on something new to address longstanding issues around the condition and affordability of NYC multifamily rental housing, the preservation of Bronx community-controlled multifamily housing, the impact of redlining on our community, and the overall lack of resources and services; public, private, financial, legal, service, and housing in our Bronx community. For our 40th year, we are going to share our work through the years and the changes we are working to bring about.

1. UNHP Multifamily Buildings Ready to Enter the Solarverse! Our initial throwback blog post takes a look at our environmental work through the years to preserve our mission-driven portfolio of affordable multifamily rental properties in the Bronx. From creating a Green Loan Fund, and working proactively to utilize new technologies, UNHP has striven to conserve energy, reduce our carbon footprint, and lower the cost of water with an eye on the benefits of overall operating cost control on the preservation of affordability for our low-income tenants. 2023 brings an elusive goal in reach – thanks to a number of new initiatives we will be able to move forward with solar technology in our properties.
