Town Partners with Long Island Housing Partnership to Provide Affordable Housing 145

 On August 27th, Brookhaven Town, working in conjunction with the Long Island Housing Partnership (LIHP), conducted a lottery at Brookhaven Town Hall to select 20 applicants who will be provided with an opportunity to purchase new, affordable condominiums at Country Pointe Meadows in Yaphank. These homes are offered for sale to eligible households that earn 80 percent or less of the area median income and will feature two bedrooms and one bath.

Supervisor Edward P. Romaine said, “I want to thank the Long Island Housing Partnership and Beechwood Yaphank LLC for working with the us to help make the dream of home ownership a reality. Brookhaven Town code ensures all housing developments must have at least 10 percent of its units dedicated to providing workforce or affordable housing, and this makes it easier for hard working families to remain on Long Island.”
