Brooklyn gets $3 million for new homes development project

House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries has secured $3 million to create new opportunities for affordable home ownership in Brooklyn.
Habitat for Humanity and local leaders announced the Constellation Development Project Wednesday. The initiative will feature several new affordable housing sites that will be built in Brooklyn. They won't be rental properties, but rather homes for ownership.
Habitat for Humanity says 77 families are expected to benefit from the new two- and three-bedroom homes. The goal is to help New Yorkers build equity and own a home they can pass down for generations.
Habitat for Humanity hopes to break ground on the sites by the end of 2024. It could be around three to four years before people can actually move in.
