The Community Preservation Corporation (CPC) was formed in 1974 in response to the property abandonment and blight issues facing New York City at the time. Founded by a group of commercial banks to invest in the preservation of rental housing stock in stable, working-class neighborhoods, CPC’s lending was designed to stem the broader tide of neighborhood decline in the city. The organization built on its successful multifamily housing and neighborhood revitalization lending model in NYC, and expanded north in the early 1990s in response to unmet housing capital needs in the Hudson Valley and upstate New York.
Since inception, CPC’s creative financing solutions have supported critical projects in neighborhoods across New York State and beyond, resulting in wide-reaching physical, economic and social impacts that improve communities and people’s lives.
