New York Communities Organizing Fund
New York Communities Organizing Fund, Inc. (NYCOFI) is a community-based nonprofit organization that seeks to empower low- and moderate-income New Yorkers to help themselves. Through public education, advocacy, research, and direct services, NYCOFI works to improve the economic security and well-being of low-income and people of color communities throughout New York State. NYCOFI was founded in 2010 and is part of a family of organizations that includes New York Communities for Change, one of the premier community organizing institutions in New York State.
A 2018 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported NYCOFI’s research on housing affordability and advocacy on behalf of low-income communities of color.
