About Organization:
Community Assisted Tenant Controlled Housing, Inc. (CATCH) is a not-forprofit organization that works to transform distressed buildings across New York City into decent, affordable, resident-controlled housing. At the invitation of residents, local politicians, non-profit agencies, or the city, we arrange and oversee the rehabilitation of abandoned or dilapidated buildings. Rather than taking title to these buildings directly, we typically put them under the ownership of a neighborhood-based “mutual housing association, ” or MHA. Each MHA is governed by a board of directors that includes residents, CATCH representatives, and sometimes people from the local community as well. All building residents are members of the MHA, and are legally entitled to vote for representatives on the board of directors or run for a position themselves.
