Project Help

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 $20,000 based on construction need.
