City Council Member Rafael Espinal Jr. (D-Bushwick, East New York) along with the City’s Department of Housing and Preservation Development (HPD) Commissioner Maria Torres-Springer today will officially launch the East New York Homeowner Help Desk at a Homeowner Forum & Resource Fair.

The Homeowner Help Desk is a vital resource Espinal secured as part of the East New York Neighborhood Plan to support homeowners in the community.

The Help Desk will be run by the Center for NYC Neighborhoods, in partnership with Espinal’s office and HPD. It will provide assistance with foreclosure prevention, guidance on scam avoidance, advice on home repair and other programs like weatherization loans. Lawyers and housing advocates will be available and targeted outreach will be conducted to inform community members of the resources available to them.
