The 5th Annual Community Impact Gallery & Competition is a unique opportunity to showcase your work to your peers, partners, and funders in the affordable housing community. The competition attracts a wide range of submissions, highlighting the collective impact that investment in affordable housing and community development has in communities across New York State.

HOW HAS YOUR PROJECT RESPONDED TO COMMUNITY NEEDS?
