Queens – New York: ERDA “A Self-Help” Affording Institution and The Most Progressive Credit Union in NYC

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.
