    Comments Off on Cooper Square Committee

    The Cooper Square Committee works with Lower East Side residents to contribute to the preservation and development of affordable, environmentally healthy housing and cultural/community spaces so that the community remains economically, racially and culturally diverse. Our staff provides one-on-one tenant counseling and eviction prevention services. Based on a client’s income eligibility, our staff provides entitlement assistance (help with applying for Food Stamps, Medicaid, SCRIE, etc…), and assistance with applying for affordable housing opportunities. We also pursue opportunities to develop and preserve affordable housing. We only provide services to Lower East Side residents. Non-residents will be referred to the appropriate organization in their community.
