How can we help?

CDCLI Awarded $50,000 Grant from Capital One Foundation

CDCLI was awarded a $50,000 grant from Capital One Foundation to support its Homeownership Center.  The grant is being used by CDCLI to fund its pre and post purchase programs and services that help Long Islanders retain assets and wealth, while addressing housing needs in order to achieve and sustain affordable, long-term homeownership.

These programs include CDCLI’s Financial Fitness, Health, and Wealth (FFHW), Home Maintenance Training Program (HMTP), and Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) counseling.




CDCLI Awarded $125,000 Housing for Everyone Grant from TD Charitable Foundation

CDCLI was awarded a $125,000 Housing for Everyone grant through TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank America’s Most Convenient Bank@.  The grant will be used by CDCLI to expand its multifamily development portfolio on Long Island.

The severe shortage of affordable rentals continues to pose challenges on Long Island.  The Long Island Index 2018 Indicators Report shows that the number of LI residents living in single family homes continues to decline (a 6% decrease in the last 3 years).  The median sales price of single family homes is out of reach for the average family.  Currently, 18% of residents live in multifamily housing and in 5 years, 30% are expected to live in multifamily housing.


Next Home Maintenance Training Program Begins 1/9

The Home Maintenance Training Program is a multi class “hands-on” home repair training course.  Our next series of classes begins this Wednesday, January 9th, 2019 and will take place at CDCLI at 7 PM.
