PROJECT HELP (HOME EMERGENCY LOAN PROGRAM)
Neighborhood Housing Services of New York City administers the Home Emergency Loan
Program, also known as Project HELP, to homeowners who are in need of emergency repairs.
Funding is provided by the New York City Council and the New York City Department of Housing
Preservation and Development (HPD) oversees the program. Under this program, NHSNYC
NHS provides conditional loans/grants to owners of 1-4 family homes and condos within
the five boroughs of New York City to enable them to complete emergency home repairs.
Due to the funding limitations of this program, successful applicants are selected on a
first-come, first-served basis. The maximum conditional loan/grant amount available
is up to $10,000 based on construction need.
