The mission of the East River Development Alliance (ERDA) is to provide residents of four public housing neighborhoods in Western Queens – Queensbridge (the largest public housing community in the nation), Astoria, Ravenswood, and Woodside – with the tools and resources needed to achieve economic mobility and self-sufficiency, and to break intergenerational cycles of poverty. ERDA achieves these objectives through four integrated, comprehensive, and long-term programs which serve over 4,500 individuals per year and are anchored by the ERDA Federal Credit Union: employment services, financial empowerment services (including one-on-one financial education and counseling, comprehensive public benefits access and tenant advocacy), college access and youth development, and community economic revitalization.
