The South End Improvement Corporation (SEIC) was founded in 1978 to draw attention to the needs of the South End of the City of Albany, tap into government funding for housing and public improvements, and give residents a voice in decision-making affecting their neighborhood.  Over 38 years later, SEIC remains a critical partner in the revitalization of Albany’s largest downtown district.
SEIC’s service area encompasses approximately 10% of the population of the City of Albany. Its mission is to improve housing conditions and the quality of life in the South End of the City of Albany, New York thereby preserving the residential character of its unique neighborhoods and encouraging city living. SEIC fulfills its mission by administering grants to meet the repair and rehabilitation needs of its low to moderate income homeowners.
Its Home Maintenance and Security (HMS) program affords homeowners up to $1,000 for emergency repairs to their homes.  This program helps about 30 households per year.  Its HOME (aka HARP IV) and AHC programs offers income eligible homeowners up to $40,000 per unit (1 to 4 units homes) to meet code; abate or encapsulate lead and address other environmental health hazards such as mold; make energy efficiency improvements; and provide accessibility modifications for seniors and disabled residents. These three programs bring more than one million dollars to the South End neighborhood, keeping people in their homes and preserving neighborhood housing stock.
SEIC partners with the Albany Community Development Agency (ACDA) to match its HARP program with ACDA resources, whenever possible, to meet residents’ housing rehabilitation needs.  Since the inception of the HARP program, SEIC has rehabilitated 50 housing units and anticipates assisting another 14 upon completion of its HARP IV program.
SEIC supports several active neighborhood associations, including the South End Neighborhood Association, Delaware Avenue Neighborhood Association, Lincoln Park, Mt.
