The Community Land Trust Workforce Housing Program will consist of affordable single family workforce housing units located in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, New York. Homes are currently planned in the Towns of Hempstead, Oyster Bay, Babylon, Brookhaven, Islip and Smithtown. The homes will consist of one and two story design with 3 or 4 bedrooms and 1 and one-half or 2 bathrooms. These homes will be offered to eligible households at 80% or less of the area median income.
LIHP, as developer, will be responsible for implementing and administering the Workforce Housing Program under the Program Guidelines.
In order to be eligible to participate in the Workforce Housing Program, a first-time homebuyer must meet all the requirements described within the program guidelines. A $100 application fee is required at time of submission of online application. This fee is paid through a secure online payment processing transaction in order to complete your application submission. These standards reflect the objective that the housing being developed is affordable to and sustainable by the borrower.
Only one application is allowed. Applicants who submit more than one application will be disqualified. After being submitted, any changes to an application must be requested in writing and must be approved by the program review committee. Applications are now available on a first come, first served basis and applications will be ranked after the applicants that were ranked through the initial lottery.
An applicant who is determined to be eligible will be offered a home to purchase. The applicant must, subsequently, begin the home buying process. Should the applicant not move forward in purchasing the home, LIHP will move on to the next name on the list.
Please review the Program Guidelines prior to submitting an application!!
