NPCs are Neighborhood Preservation Companies. There are 140 NPCs located in urban and suburban areas throughout New York State. NPCs were first established in 1977 when Assemblyman Herman “Denny” Farrell created the Neighborhood Preservation Program in response to unmet housing needs in his community. NPCs receive funding from New York State Homes and Community Renewal, which defines their purpose as providing assistance including, but not limited to: “Housing rehabilitation, home buyer counseling, tenant counseling, landlord/tenant mediation, community rehabilitation and renewal, crime watch programs, employment programs, legal assistance, and Main Street Development.”

See for more details about the program.

NPCs are local assistance providers for all matters related to housing. NPCs contribute to the economic well-being of their communities by revitalizing distressed areas, helping families better manage their assets, promoting healthy food access, and encouraging local engagement. NPCNYS is proud to provide technical assistance, policy advocacy, and professional development opportunities to all 143 NPCs in order to expand their capacity and help them deliver their missions.
