NCLB offers several opportunities to
purchase property from our inventory.
house to home
Through the House to Home program, NCLB helps City of Newburgh residents become first-time homebuyers by making fully renovated residences available for owner-occupancy. Prospective participants must have a family household income under 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI)* - about $65,000 for a family of 4 - and have lived in Newburgh for at least five years. Our partner PathStone assists in evaluating applicants and provides no-cost home buyer education and counseling, as well as access to their downpayment and closing cost assistance programs.
The program’s first two properties at 53 & 55 Farrington are currently pending sale. We look forward to making available 4-5 more properties through 2017.
neighbors for neighborhoods
NCLB is one of only six land banks selected to participate in Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman’s N4N pilot program, which is providing a total of up to $4 million in subsidies for everyday New Yorkers to rehabilitate vacant neighborhood property into affordable rental housing. The initiative was inspired in part by our past project at 13 Chambers Street, which features an owner-occupied commercial unit and three affordable apartments. Details of the N4N program, including available properties, will be made available soon. To read more about the program, see the AG's press release through the following link:
habitat for humanity
Building on the success of prior projects with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh, we look forward to continuing to work together to create high quality, affordable home ownership opportunities for up to 10 families over the next two years.
