Community-Based Housing Organizations

DHCR provides funds to not-for-profit organizations throughout New York State for the purpose of helping New York State residents with their housing needs. The two types of organizations, known collectively as Community-Based Housing Organizations, are Neighborhood Preservation Companies and Rural Preservation Companies. Many of the Neighborhood Preservation Companies offer services to tenants and owners of buildings subject to Rent Stabilization and Rent Control.

Each company works within a specific geographic area called a service area. The information below includes the organization's name, their website address (if they have one), and their service area. Clicking on an organization name will open a new window containing detailed information about the company and the types of services it provides.

Community-Based Housing Organizations are making a direct impact on the quality of life in the inner cities, towns, villages, and remote rural communities of our state by providing a wide variety or services to low- and middle-income families, the elderly, and persons with special needs. Examples of services provided include, but are not limited to, developing and/or rehabilitating housing, assisting first-time homebuyers, organizing tenant associations, providing tenant assistance, forming community and neighborhood watch programs, developing job training programs, youth mentoring, and organizing community activities.

Please note: The following is a list of Community-Based Housing Organizations located in counties that contain apartments that are subject to Rent Stabilization/Rent Control. You can also view our statewide listing of Community-Based Housing Organizations.
