About the New York State Mortgage Assistance Program

The New York State Mortgage Assistance Program is administered by the Center for NYC Neighborhoods, a non-profit organization that promotes and protects affordable homeownership. Loans are made by Sustainable Neighborhoods LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Center.

Before applying to the program, we strongly recommend that you first contact a non-profit housing counseling or legal services organization that can assess whether you are eligible. For a referral to a government-vetted foreclosure professional in your community, contact the New York State Attorney General’s Homeownership Protection Program at 855- HOME-456. There is no charge to eligible homeowners for the program.

Eligible homeowners must have experienced a financial hardship and must demonstrate an ability to afford their housing payments after receiving assistance. Funds can be used to bring a mortgage current, help get a modification, pay off a mortgage or property tax arrears, or settle other debts that could lead to foreclosure.
