About the Urban Homeownership Assistance Program (UHAP)

The Urban Homeownership Assistance Program (UHAP) provides administrative funding grants to Neighborhood Preservation Companies that provide homeownership counseling services or operate an urban homeownership assistance counseling center, especially those companies serving areas with high foreclosure rates and/or subprime mortgages. Funding availability for UHAP awards is determined by the appropriation and guidelines set forth in the NYS Executive budget.

Eligibility Requirements and Program Limitations

To be eligible to receive UHAP funds, the organization must be an existing Neighborhood Preservation Company located in a city with a population of 60,000 or more as determined by the US Census of 2000.
