Governor Kathy Hochul has announced the allocation of over $86 million to support 11 housing projects across New York State. These initiatives will create 479 units and 665 beds of permanent supportive housing, and preserve 34 units with 130 beds of emergency and transitional housing for those who have experienced homelessness. The funding will benefit projects in multiple counties including Chenango, Cortland, Dutchess, Erie, Monroe, Oneida, Orange, Ulster, and the Bronx.

Governor Hochul emphasized that expanding access to permanent, affordable housing coupled with essential support services is a priority for her administration. The projects aim to provide safe, stable living conditions for vulnerable groups such as homeless veterans and survivors of domestic violence, assisting them in overcoming their challenges.

The funding, part of a $25 billion comprehensive housing plan, was awarded through a competitive process by the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance’s Homeless Housing and Assistance Program. This investment is expected to contribute significantly to the state’s goal of creating or preserving 100,000 affordable homes, including 10,000 with supportive services for those in need.
