Community Housing Innovations holds monthly orientation sessions for first-time home buyers interested in our $25,000 down payment assistance and HUD-certified counseling. In the last three months, nearly 100 people have packed each of the free counseling seminars on Long Island and Westchester County. The seminars go over the important points of owning a home, as well as how to apply for the funding through CHI from the NYS Affordable Housing Corporation. In the last 20 years, CHI has administered approximately $17 million to 750 first-time home-buyers for their first purchase. We were awarded $1.4 million to distribute this year to purchase homes in Westchester County and Long Island.
