The cities of Fulton and Oswego are receiving state grants to rehabilitate and build low- and moderate-income housing.
The competitive awards are made to local municipalities and nonprofits to help revitalize community and drive local economic activity.
The awards assist in the costs of home improvements, the rehabilitation of existing housing, and the new construction of homes for first-time homebuyers, and are provided through the Affordable Housing Corporation (AHC).
AHC, which is part of New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR), supports homeownership opportunities for low- and moderate-income families by providing grants to municipalities and nonprofit organizations.
Fulton will receive $188,658 to rehabilitate 15 affordable units while Oswego will receive $400,000 for the improvement of 18 affordable units.
