Homeownership Assistance Program

     Our program enables families of modest income to become first time home buyers.  PathStone Community Improvement of Newburgh offers a Home Buyer Education Course covering topics such as: household budgeting, credit and savings management, home inspections and the purchase process. Families who successfully complete this course may also be eligible for grants and other assistance for purchasing a home.

     First time home buyers, families who have not owned a home in the past three years, and displaced homemakers may all be eligible to participate in PathStone’s Homeownership Assistance Program.  While there are income eligibility requirements for grant assistance, the program is designed to assist families with a variety of income levels. Housing Counselors will help determine your eligibility.

     The first step toward homeownership is enrolling in an orientation session in Newburgh or Middletown.  There you will have the opportunity to learn more about the Homeownership Assistance Program and complete an application.  To enroll in our next session please call 845-569-0770.


Operation Weed & Seed

     Operation Weed and Seed is a strategy which aims to prevent, control, and reduce violent crime, drug abuse, and gang activity in targeted high-crime neighborhoods across the country. In Newburgh, PathStone Community Improvement (as NCIC) spearheaded the Weed & Seed program in the Lander Street neighborhood.

     The strategy involves a two-pronged approach: Newburgh Police Department and city prosecutors cooperate in "weeding out" criminals who participate in violent crime and drug abuse, attempting to prevent their return to the targeted area; and "seeding" by local human service and community development organizations bringing services encompassing prevention, intervention, treatment, and neighborhood revitalization.  Area residents are encouraged to assist officers and to stay informed about and involved in community revitalization efforts.

     PathStone Community Improvement of Newburgh aims to continue support of the efforts in the northeast portion of this city and to expand Operation Weed & Seed into other neighborhoods.
