New York Private Housing Finance Law
Sec. § 1200
Statement of Legislative Findings and Purpose

The legislature hereby finds and declares that there exists in New York state a serious need for financial and technical resources to assist renters and property owners to make dwelling units accessible for low and moderate income persons with disabilities. Providing assistance with the cost of adapting homes will enable many New Yorkers with disabilities to safely and comfortably continue to, or return to, live in their residences instead of residing in an institutional setting.
