ITHACA, N.Y. (WENY) -- New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced on Thursday, June 27th that Ithaca is getting $4.2 million to develop 20 new permanent housing units. The proposed Stately Apartments is set to feature laundry facilities, community room, 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 in a prepared statement.

The grants were  awarded through a competitive process by the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance’s Homeless Housing and Assistance Program. In Ithaca the housing units will be part of a single building.

“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," said Hochul.

The money was part of $45 million awarded across the state.
