Project Set-Aside Approval List

Click here to download SONYMA's Project Set-Aside Approval List using Adobe Acrobat Reader.

This Project Set-Aside Approval list is designed to provide you with certain information pertaining to SONYMA's approved condominium and co-operative projects. The Project Set-Aside number (PSA #) must be utilized when reserving the loan on our Lender Online (LOL) system. If the development does not appear on the Lender Online (LOL) drop-down, please contact our Project Set Aside Director, Marie Cammarata, at 212-872-0401, for assistance. If you see that the number of units are near or close to the allotted loans available for financing, we strongly recommend that you contact us to see if any units are available for financing. This report is updated bi-weekly and may not be up to date at the time of your reservation. If our project approval has expired, please fax (917-274-0401) or email (mcammarata@nyshcr.org) the following documents to us for review:

  1. Any amendments filed since the project was approved
  2. A recent appraisal; and
  3. An updated Project Set-Aside Builder/Developer/Sponsor Information Form

Disclaimer: While SONYMA will make every effort to ensure that the information contained in the project list is accurate, it does not guarantee so. The report will be updated twice per month. If the number of Loans Available for Reservation is low, please contact Marie Cammarata at (212) 872-0401 or mcammarata@nyshcr.org before registering a loan.
