What is the Housing Preservation program?

RTNYC’s Housing Preservation program supports eligible New Yorkers in improving the safety and health of their homes through three initiatives:

  1. Critical Home Repair provides no-cost major repairs to homeowners to maintain the integrity of their homes. Common repairs include roofing, plumbing, siding, flooring, and windows.  
  2. Accessibility Modifications help adapt the homes of New Yorkers living with different abilities so they may remain in their homes or return from institutional care. Typical modifications include wheelchair ramps and lifts, stair glides, handrails, grab bars, and accessible bathrooms.  
  3. Veterans Safe at Home provides no-cost repairs and modifications to eligible veterans to ensure that their homes are safe and healthy.

"Rebuilding Together NYC...completed exterior critical repairs to my leaky soffit, dry rot on porch & deck, replaced damaged deck posts and loose balcony tiles and painted all rusted metal posts and railings black to match my front gate. I am more than ecstatic with the professionalism and awesome, beautiful work, and attention to detail the contractor…provided to my much needed repairs. I was scammed 5 years ago and in almost every project thereafter trying to get my home in a semi-adaptive setting before I truly settle and age in place due to my illness and injuries… but my motto is ..."my ability is stronger than my disability”…this little engine still has some steam running in her, slow and steady in my pace..."
