Healthy Homes Pilot Program

We have had the opportunity to bring about positive health outcomes for many clients in our weatherization and home rehabilitation programs, senior rental homes, and tenants under the Nursing Home Transition and Diversion Program.

The Program is funded by the New York State Affordable Housing Corporation and the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation. Grants, deferred payment loans and low interest loans are available to those who qualify.


The Weatherization Assistance Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and administered through the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal Energy Services Bureau.
