New York State is getting $8 million in funds to construct, rehabilitate, and improve owner-occupied homes.
The funding will help 295 income-eligible families and the Southern Tier is getting $1 million in funds.
The Arbor Housing and Development organization will receive the funds for the home improvement of about 60 units.
The units will be located on scattered sites in Chemung, Steuben, Schuyler, and Allegany counties.
The goal of the statewide House NY program is to create or preserve 14,300 units by 2018.
“We are committed to helping all New Yorkers achieve and preserve the American Dream of home ownership, and this funding will build and improve affordable owner-occupied housing in every corner of the state,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said. “This program supports this administration’s efforts to build stronger, more resilient communities and helps to create a stronger, fairer and more affordable New York for all.”
