CDLI has been selected by New York State Homes and Community Renewal to administer an Affordable Home Ownership Development (AHOD) Home Improvement Program in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Funds are made available through the New York State Affordable Housing Corporation.


The Long Island Home Improvement Program provides income-eligible households the resources to make necessary repairs that will correct basic structural defects or repair basic building systems that threaten, or if not corrected could threaten, the health and safety of the dwelling’s residents.


These home improvements are designed to prolong the useful life of each home as well as increase the dwelling’s health, safety, and sustainability. Funds are available based on need and on meeting the individualized needs of each household that applies. CDLI attempts to assist as many households as funding will allow. Due to the high demand for this program, there is currently a waitlist of approximately 2 years.

Typical repairs may include but are not limited to:

  • Heating System Replacements

  • Electrical Service Upgrade

  • Roof Replacement

  • Siding

  • Gutters

  • Energy Efficiency

  • Windows & Doors

  • Handrails, Stoops, & Walkways

  • Structural Correction

  • Health & Safety Measures
