NHSNYC was incorporated in 1982 to provide educational and financial support for the promotion and preservation of homeownership in NYC. Our first program offered low-interest loans to homeowners in underserved low- and moderate-income communities which helped address widespread redlining at the time. To-date we have provided more than 180,000 clients with homeownership education, facilitated $1.65 billion in affordable mortgage financing to help 7,400 clients become first-time homeowners and originated 4,965 rehab and 1,129 emergency loans to help thousands of clients maintain homeownership. We are a federally certified Community Development Financial Institution, a housing counseling agency certified by the U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development and a chartered member of NeighborWorks America.
