Community Development Corporation of Long Island

We Invest in Your Dreams


Our Programs

Homeownership Center
Whether you are a first-time homebuyer, a renter dreaming of homeownership, or a homeowner in need of home maintenance assistance and training, CDCLI can help. We offer grants, loans, training, and other assistance to help you gain financial independence and to achieve your dreams. We have several programs to suit your needs.
Rental Housing Assistance
The Housing Choice Voucher program provides rental assistance to low-income families through Federal funds.
Real Estate Development
CDCLI is dedicated to increasing affordable housing opportunities throughout Long Island that meet each community’s needs. Wherever there is opportunity and community support, CDCLI  works with residents, government officials, community leaders and other partners to accomplish affordable housing development.
Home Improvement Program
The Home Improvement Program helps lower income home owners to make repairs to their homes. 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.  The program is free and is provided to low-income Long Islanders, especially the elderly and disabled, to make their homes more energy efficient.
Healthy Homes Pilot Program
Community Development Corporation of Long Island and key partners have long observed the positive benefits of affordable, good quality, and stable housing on client health. 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. When housing is stable, weather tight, accessible, safe from tripping hazards, and green, the occupants are healthier.
