Through Neighborhood Restore’s affiliate entities, Restoring Urban Neighborhoods, LLC (“RUN”) and Restored Homes Housing Fund Development Corporation (“Restored Homes”), affordable homeownership opportunities are made available to low- and moderate- income households. All homes are rehabilitated in compliance with all federal, state and local laws, statutes, ordinances, regulations and requirements.


Application Process

Potential homebuyers are selected through a lottery process administered by New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (“HPD”), Restoring Urban Neighborhoods, LLC (“RUN”) and Restored Homes Housing Fund Development Corporation (“Restored Homes”). If you are interested in purchasing a home, it is necessary to submit a homebuyer application. Once a homebuyer application is received and reviewed, the applicant will be contacted to discuss next steps including threshold criteria related to income and asset restrictions. Potential homebuyers should be prepared to supply financial documentation to determine programmatic qualifications. Applicants who are selected through the lottery process and meet program requirements will be given the opportunity to purchase a home. RUN and Restored Homes coordinate their efforts to support affordable homeownership by partnering with agencies approved by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”) that provide counseling, financial literacy, and access to affordable homeownership opportunities as well as foreclosure prevention strategies.
