Albany, NY - City of Albany residents and homeowners: Are you looking to buy a home or fix up the home you already own?

The Albany Community Development Agency (ACDA) may be able to help. The ACDA offers a variety of grant and loan opportunities to income qualified individuals and families, including homeowners and landlords. 

The ACDA offers loans and grants to residents to:
  • help pay for a down payment on a home;
  • make your home lead safe;
  • rehab a home or vacant building;
  • make emergency repairs, including for seniors;
  • rehab homes to make them accessible to the disabled;
  • assist landlords to rehab apartment buildings.

For more information, call the Albany Community Development Agency at 518-434-5265, visit or visit ACDA offices on the second floor of 200 Henry Johnson Boulevard.

ACDA revitalizes our neighborhoods by increasing home ownership, providing resources for home and community improvements, and connecting partners to facilitate quality of life projects and workforce opportunities for residents with low to moderate incomes.

ACDA secures and manages millions of dollars in U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds each year—which are allocated to sub-recipients through strategic grants, or to the community through housing programs, and Citywide neighborhood development or public improvement projects. These funds are often times combined with other funding sources to maximize community development initiatives, improve housing conditions, leverage strategic housing and neighborhood projects, combat blight, increase home ownership, and foster economic and commercial stability in deserving neighborhoods.
