Sonyma has a nice program, and in all likelihood they will use an FHA loan product to grant such a loan. Your best best is to contact a local lender who offers that product and see what your options are. I'm sure Sonyma is a good way to go for someone in your shoes.

Regarding the tax credit comment - if you are referring to the homebuyer tax credit you had to be under contract by end of April. FHA doesn't give you any credits towards your closing costs, but the SONYMA program does offer some closing costs assistance. FHA currently permits the seller to pay up to 6% of the sales price towards your closing costs, and it may very well be needed as NY has one of the highest closing costs out of any state.
