Neighborhood Revitalization Program


The Neighborhood Revitalization Program offers incentives to potential buyers who qualify for the SONYMA Achieving the Dream Program and wish to purchase homes in need of repair in New York State. Subsidy available under the program can only be used for "necessary" renovations as determined by the agency. The program is available statewide. Neighborhoods are at the heart of every vibrant community. Owner occupant buyers will bring economic stability and growth to neighborhoods and improve property values of the surrounding homes. This ultimately restores community pride, and helps drive long-term, sustainable economic growth.
