Governor Kathy Hochul announced $875 million in financing through bonds, tax credits and subsidies to build or maintain 3,100 affordable, sustainable and supportive homes at 27 developments across New York State. Together with additional private funding and resources, the 27 funded projects are expected to generate a total investment of more than $1.5 billion. The awards will increase housing supply in each region, assist local economic development efforts, address homelessness through on-site services that provide safe housing for vulnerable populations, include sustainable features that advance the state’s climate goals, and provide free broadband to help bridge the digital divide.

“My administration is committed to ensuring that every New Yorker has access to affordable, sustainable housing and critical services that improve lives,” Governor Hochul said. “This funding will ultimately create more independent living spaces for seniors and vulnerable residents, affordable apartments for young people, and revitalized neighborhoods where businesses can succeed and grow their workforce. These innovative developments are part of our growing supply at the heart of our strategic efforts to housing and create a more affordable and liveable New York for all.”

The incentives announced today are part of Governor Hochul’s $25 billion comprehensive housing plan to create or preserve 100,000 affordable housing units in New York State, including 10,000 housing with support services for the disadvantaged and an additional 50,000 electrified housing units .

In addition, these developments build on the Governor’s ConnectALL initiative to provide residents with free broadband service, which has made historic investments to provide high-speed Internet in underserved communities and close the digital divide for low-income New Yorkers.

New York State Homes and Community Renewal Commissioner RuthAnne Visnauskas said, “The $875 million in financing we’re announcing today will deliver more than 3,100 high-quality, affordable, environmentally sustainable apartments in every borough of New York, while expanding access to broadband and essential support services.
