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.
Long Island Green Homes
CDCLI administers the Long Island Green Homes and Buildings Consortium which includes the Towns of Babylon, Brookhaven, Huntington, Islip, North Hempstead, Smithtown and Southampton, the Sustainability Institute at Molloy College, Nassau and Suffolk Counties, NYSERDA, LIPA and National Grid. The Consortium is raising homeowner awareness of opportunities to save energy.
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.
Sandy Housing Recovery Program
Since the days after Superstorm Sandy, CDCLI has been helping individuals, families, and communities as they face the challenges presented by the storm. Whether fixing repairs for our own tenants’ wind-damaged houses, giving food baskets and toys to families for the holidays, assisting homeowners regarding the impact of the storm on their mortgage and budget, or making emergency home repairs, CDCLI immediately took action to help those in need.
