Together these projects will provide 142 new units of supportive housing.
On February 1, 2017, the Homeless Housing Assistance Corporation awarded funding from the State’s Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) Homeless Housing Assistance Program for three supportive housing projects being developed by Network members. Together these projects will provide 142 new units of supportive housing.
Project Renewal was awarded $6.2 million to create 71 units of supportive housing in a new residence in Bedford Park, Bronx. This project will be one of the final projects to be built under the expiring NY/NY 3 agreement.
New Destiny was awarded $5 million to build 23 units of supportive housing for homeless women and families in Crotona Park, Bronx.
West Side Federation for Senior and Supportive Housing (WSFSSH) was awarded $3.1 million to help build Mill Brook Terrace in Mott Haven, Bronx. The new residence will provide supportive housing for 48 homeless seniors.
In addition, both New Destiny and WSFSSH were awarded conditional awards last September for services and operating funds for these new residences in the first round of the Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative, and should be approved as permanent funding as the projects open.
Congratulations to all!
