NeighborhoodLIFT®: Next Steps

If you have not completed the required steps for an appointment, NHSNYC can help you work toward homeownership. NOTE: Completing the required steps does not guarantee an appointment. Appointments will be open only if NeighborhoodLIFT funds are available.

  1. Get pre-approved for a mortgage by an approved participating lender.
  2. Find a house you want to buy and get a signed purchase and sale agreement to purchase that house. You must be in contract and have a signed purchase and sale agreement in hand to apply for NeighborhoodLIFT funds.
  3. Register for homebuyer education.  Successful completion of the eight-hour HBE course is required prior to closing.
  4. Explore other homebuyer programs in your area that can be combined with LIFT.
