Better Housing for Tompkins County is the only organization devoted solely to addressing the housing needs of rural Tompkins County. Since 1981 we have assisted low-to-moderate-income county residents living outside the City of Ithaca through our first-time homebuyer program and various home repair programs. We also manage 121 affordable apartments throughout the county for seniors and the disabled.
What We Do
Recognizing that people deserve to live with dignity, Better Housing for Tompkins County, Inc. is dedicated to increasing sustainable, secure and affordable housing options for rural residents through construction, education and advocacy.
