BASE PROSPECTUS

40,000,000 Shares

BlackRock Corporate High Yield Fund, Inc.

Shares of Common Stock

Rights to Purchase Shares of Common Stock

BlackRock Corporate High Yield Fund, Inc. (the "Fund," "we," "us" or "our") is a diversified, closed-end management investment company. The Fund's primary investment objective is to provide shareholders with current income. The Fund's secondary investment objective is to provide shareholders with capital appreciation. The Fund's investment objectives are fundamental policies and may not be changed without the approval of a majority of the outstanding voting securities of the Fund (as defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended). There can be no assurance that the investment objectives of the Fund will be realized.

We may offer, from time to time, in one or more offerings, up to 40,000,000 shares of our common stock, par value $.10 per share ("common shares"). We may also offer subscription rights to purchase our common shares. Common shares may be offered at prices and on terms to be set forth in one or more supplements to this Prospectus (each, a "Prospectus Supplement"). You should read this Prospectus and the applicable Prospectus Supplement carefully before you invest in our common shares.

Our common shares may be offered directly to one or more purchasers, including existing shareholders in a rights offering, through agents designated from time to time by us, or to or through underwriters or dealers. The Prospectus Supplement relating to the offering will identify any agents or underwriters involved in the sale of our common shares, and will set forth any applicable purchase price, fee, commission or discount arrangement between us and our agents or underwriters, or among our underwriters, or the basis upon which such amount may be calculated. The Prospectus Supplement relating to any offering of rights will set forth the number of common shares issuable upon the exercise of each right (or number of rights) and the other terms of such rights offering. We may not sell any of our common shares through agents, underwriters or dealers without delivery of a Prospectus Supplement describing the method and terms of the particular offering of our common shares.

Our common shares are listed on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") under the symbol "HYT." The last reported sale price of our common shares, as reported by the NYSE on January 31, 2022 was $11.17 per common share. The net asset value of our common shares at the close of business on January 31, 2022 was $11.56 per common share. Rights issued by the Fund may also be listed on a securities exchange.

Investing in the Fund's common shares involves certain risks that are described in the "Risks" section beginning on page 55 of this Prospectus.

Shares of closed-end management investment companies frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value. The Fund's common shares have traded at a discount to net asset value, including during recent periods. If the Fund's common shares trade at a discount to their net asset value, the risk of loss may increase for purchasers in a public offering.

Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved these securities or passed upon the adequacy of this Prospectus. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

You should read this Prospectus and applicable Prospectus Supplement, which contain important information, before deciding whether to invest in the common shares.
