Plus 1 Accessory Dwelling Unit Program Overview:

Through a partnership with the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal, the Housing Action Council, and Pace University, Habitat NYC and Westchester is undertaking the creation and legalization of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) in four municipalities in Westchester County. Through our Plus 1 ADU program, Habitat will work with low to moderate income homeowners in Bedford, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, and Hastings to create a total of 35 ADUs to operate as rental units. The benefits of this program are two pronged—via both development and preservation strategies. The program aims to deliver additional rental housing units in these 4 geographies, while also creating additional housing and income opportunities for low to moderate income homeowners, supporting them to remain in their homes long-term. Habitat NYC and Westchester has been awarded grant funds to deliver ADUs to income eligible homeowners who occupy privately owned, owner-occupied homes in Westchester County.
