"New York is making tremendous strides towards our goal of providing safe, affordable and stable housing for all New Yorkers," Governor Cuomo said. "We will continue to develop affordable and supportive housing across the state to make sure more individuals and families have access to a home of their own."
"This investment will continue our efforts to provide affordable, supportive, and quality housing in communities across the state," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "We want to make sure that all New Yorkers have access to housing and services they need to live their best lives. The investment builds on our nation-leading, $20 billion plan to increase affordable housing stock and combat homelessness in New York."
Awards will provide the service and operating funding needed to operate permanent supportive housing units. Applicants are expected to secure separate capital funding to finance the development and construction of their housing project. Funding awarded under this RFP may be used to provide rental assistance and services to eligible target populations to ensure their housing stability. ■
