Project Help

Neighborhood Housing Services of Staten Island administers the Home Emergency Loan Program, also known as Project HELP, to homeowners who are in need of home emergency repairs. Funding is provided by the New York City Council but the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) oversees the program. Under this program, NHS of Staten Island provides conditional loans/grants to owners of 1-4 family homes and condos on Staten Island to enable them to complete emergency home repairs. Due to the funding limitations of this program, successful applicants are selected on a first-come, first-served basis. The maximum conditional loan/grant amount available is up to $20,000 based on construction need.
