Buying a home can be intimidating and difficult. The Long Island Housing Partnership, certified by HUD, is here to help.

Our counselors have helped thousands of first-time homebuyers get affordable mortgage financing over the past three decades.

The first step to homeownership is to attend our free Orientation for First Time Homebuyers live webinar. The Orientation will provide information regarding the steps to homeownership including, affordability, the importance of credit, available grants and the mortgage lending process.

Once you attend an Orientation, you will have the opportunity to set up a one-on-one mortgage counseling appointment with one of our certified mortgage counselors.
