Last spring, Gov. Mario M. Cuomo unveiled a program under which foreign banks would invest $100 million to finance housing in New York City's poorer neighborhoods.

It is designed to assist families whose incomes fall within what the state defines as low to moderate income households, which range from $20,000 to $50,000.
