Steuben County has been granted $4.9 million to support the creation of affordable housing units in Corning, aimed at assisting seniors and formerly homeless individuals. Governor Kathy Hochul announced the funding as part of a broader initiative to address homelessness in New York State. This effort complements an additional $2.7 million allocated for a similar project in Erie County, totaling $7.6 million dedicated to increasing supportive and affordable housing availability.

The funding will facilitate the development of 15 permanent supportive housing units as part of the Parish Heights project in Corning, targeting the formerly homeless and those aged 55 and over. The initiative will also include 30 affordable apartments and a daycare facility, benefiting from additional support through Empire State Development’s Restore NY program.

This project aligns with Governor Hochul’s $25 billion housing plan, aiming to create and preserve 100,000 affordable homes across the state. The competitive grants, managed by the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance’s Homeless Housing and Assistance Program, are part of a significant investment to mitigate homelessness and enhance community support services in New York State.
