Home Improvement Program (HIP)


Our Home Improvement Program, funded by the NYS Affordable Housing Corporation (NYS AHC), provides grants up to $40,000.  To qualify, you must own and reside in a single-family home in the South End. Homeowners are eligible if their household income is 112% or under the annual median income (AMI) for the Albany-Schenectady-Troy Metropolitan Area.

* We recommend filling out a Pre-Eligibility Application even when programs are closed. If a slot opens, we do refer to these applications for new clients!

112% AMI Chart 2020

* Income guidelines change annually

Home improvement funding can be used to correct basic structural defects or repair basic building systems, abate lead, provide energy efficiency improvements, and make homes accessible for the frail, elderly, and disabled.
