A recent compliance audit of CHI from the federal Department of Housing & Urban Development's Office of Housing Counseling yielded a stellar review resulting in its unconditional approval of CHI as a housing counseling agency for the next three years.
Housing Program Specialist Matthew Finn states, “I wanted to give recognition for the wonderful job you are doing in the community. Between the staff inside the office and those out in the field, your agency is making a wide outreaching positive effect for the local area.”
CHI has been a HUD-approved housing counseling agency since 1997 when it established its Homeownership Program, providing counseling, education and down payment grant assistance to income-qualified first-time home buyers in Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester Counties. Since that time, CHI has distributed over $17 million in grant assistance to over 800 first-time home buyers.
