Neighborhood Builders Program was an offshoot of the Partnerships New Homes Program. It had the same type of new construction requirements: one- to three-family homes, cooperatives, and condominiums. Under the program, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) provided small, locally-based enterprises with assistance to develop the capacity to complete housing development projects. Depending on the builder’s requirements, the New York City Housing Partnership (now the Housing Partnership Development Corporation) also provided financial, marketing, cost estimating, legal, and other support services. Seed loans for pre-development costs were also made available.
