Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently announced $11 million in grants to build, improve and preserve affordable housing for low- and moderate-income New Yorkers.

Counties, cities, towns and villages, as well as not-for-profit organizations, applied to the New York State Homes and Community Renewal for funding, which was available for new homeownership and housing rehabilitation. Subsequently, homeowners can apply to their local municipality or not-for-profit organization where they will be screened for eligibility for the program based on income criteria.
