A Message from the Supervisor

“Welcome to Islip, the 3rd largest town in New York State, but with an endearing small town feel. We are so proud of our town…our beaches, golf courses, marinas, parks, housing opportunities for all, businesses, industrial parks, healthcare and educational institutions including our own Islip MacArthur Airport that provides many job opportunities. I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” Angie

The Town of Islip Community Development Agency is best known for its affordable housing programs for first time homebuyers (housing lotteries) and for assisting existing homeowners to renovate their homes with zero interest loans (housing rehabilitation program).

The CDA was created by New York State legislation in 1976 at the request of the Town of Islip. It is an independent agency that is strongly affiliated with the Town. There are two primary objectives of the CDA:

  • To assist low and moderate income residents of the Town through housing and public service programs.
  • To remove blighted conditions in residential and commercial areas.

The CDA has been designated by the Town of Islip to administer four federally funded programs from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. These programs are: the Community Development Block Grant Program; the HOME Investment Partnership Program; the Emergency Shelter Grant Program; and the Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS Program.

To contact the CDA, please call (631) 665-1185 Monday through Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Our office is located at 15 Shore Lane in Bay Shore, and our mailing address is P.O. Box 5587, Bay Shore, NY, 11706.
