Resources for Homeowners and Community Members

Homeowners can receive free legal assistance to prevent foreclosures through the Homes/Homeowner Protection Program (HOPP). Please see the link to HOPP here. 

A Note to Homeowners and Community Members from LISC:

Dear New York State Housing Stabilization Fund Partners:

As part of a statewide collaborative effort with the Empire Justice Center and the Center for New York City Neighborhoods, LISC is asking for your immediate help to get the word out to all New York State homeowners struggling to pay their mortgage and property taxes during COVID that no-cost foreclosure prevention assistance is available immediately through Homeowner Protection Program (HOPP) providers across New York State.

This special initiative is designed to build upon outreach by HOPP providers and other organizations.  It is designed to convince at-risk households to seek assistance now instead of waiting until temporary state and federal foreclosure moratoria and forbearance periods end in the coming months.  With new COVID-relief mortgage assistance for homeowners becoming available, this is a critical time for households to get support that is available to them through the HOPP network.

Attached are additional information, instructions and sample copy for use on websites, social media, newsletters and other communication channels.  Please also share it with community partners and stakeholders in your area, and ask them to distribute it widely over the next three months.

Please contact our team member, David Hunter, with any questions at 212-455-9325 or

New York State Housing Stabilization Fund
