The New York State Affordable Housing Corporation recently awarded Broadway Fillmore NHS $500,000 to complete home repairs for low-income homeowners. Funds will be used to correct major systems – roof, electric, heating, plumbing and other health/safety issues. Energy conservation work will also be included. To start the application process, you may stop by our office and pick up an initial intake form, or you may download it here. bfnhs-home-repair-intake-form-2017 There is a preference for very low-income homeowners – below 50% of area median income (currently $33,650 for a family of 4), and for low-income seniors (over 62).
The funds are structured as 90% grant and 10% owner contribution. Owners who have no other source of funding for their contribution may borrow the funds from BFNHS at 3%. The priority service area for the funds is Best Street to the North, Koons and Babcock to the East, Seneca Street to the South and Herman and Smith Streets to the West.
