ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — More than 192 awards totaling $35 million have been awarded to housing agencies in New York to provide at least 1,400 units of supportive housing. The housing units will support vulnerable populations including veterans, victims of domestic violence, disabled senior citizens, chronically homeless people and families, as well as people with health, mental health and substance use disorders.

“The continued spread of housing insecurity has been one of the pandemic’s most damaging impacts and it is incumbent on all of us to ensure we provide the resources vulnerable New Yorkers need to not only get through these difficult times, but also build a fulfilling life,” said Governor Kathy Hochul. “Supportive housing projects target the root causes of homelessness by coupling affordable housing with critical supportive services and through investments like this, we can continue with these projects in every corner of the state to ensure no New Yorker is left behind.”

The awards are for service and operating funding needed to operate permanent supportive housing units. The awards will allow applicants to secure separate funding to finance the development and construction of their housing project. 

The awards may be used to provide rental assistance and services to eligible populations to ensure their housing stability including primary and behavioral health services, employment and vocational training and assistance, child care and educational educational assistance.
