About Us

Cooper Square Mutual Housing Association (CSMHA) is a low-income housing cooperative and non-profit organization formed in 1991 on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Our mission is to manage and preserve a co-op of 21 buildings so that they are permanently affordable to low-income resident-shareholders, under principles of economic and social justice embodied in our community’s history. CSMHA is the product of local residents organizing against their own displacement and governance of the co-op by local residents remains a central dynamic in our organization. The CSMHA also acts as managing agent to several other HDFC and mixed-use cooperative buildings outside of the CSMHA co-op. 


We were created by (but are distinct from) the Cooper Square Committee, which continues to organize against the displacement of low-income residents in our community. We work closely with (but are distinct from) the Cooper Square Community Land Trust, which owns and stewards the land under our buildings.
