Housing, Affordable and Workforce


Welcome to Suffolk County's workforce housing website. The need for workforce housing has reached crisis proportions throughout the County. Families and businesses have all felt the repercussions of this challenge as young workers and our elderly have left Long Island for more affordable housing elsewhere. This issue did not develop overnight, nor can it be solved overnight. It will take all of us working together to find a multitude of solutions that help us keep our families together. This website seeks to provide one-stop shopping for housing resource information for renters, first time homebuyers, homeowners, developers, employers and those who want to learn more about workforce housing and get involved to support its development in your community.
