$4.2 Million Awarded for Ithaca Housing Project


$4.2 million will go to develop supportive housing in Ithaca.

Governor Kathy Hochul has announced that Steuben Churchpeople Against Poverty (dba Arbor Housing Development) will use the money to construct 20 permanent supportive housing units. The proposed Stately Apartments will feature laundry facilities, a community room, a garden, and commercial space.

“Creating new permanent supportive housing is central to my administration’s work to reduce homelessness across New York State, while simultaneously supporting strong neighborhoods throughout our state,” Governor Hochul said. “When completed, these projects will provide vulnerable New Yorkers with an affordable place to call home and the security and services they need to live safely and successfully in their communities.”

Supportive services will be provided by Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga.

The money is part of a larger $45 million in funding to create nearly 227 permanent supportive housing units at six sites across New York located in Erie, Tompkins, Oneida, St. Lawrence, and Kings Counties.
