The 58 grants were awarded through several programs administered by New York State Homes and Community Renewal.
Through HCR's Office of Community Renewal, grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations and municipalities through a variety of state and federally funded programs aimed at creating and preserving affordable housing, improving and revitalizing neighborhoods, and strengthening local economies. This includes: Access to Home, Access to Home for Heroes, Access to Home for Medicaid, Mobile and Manufactured Home Replacement, RESTORE and the NYS HOME Local Program.
OCR issues grant awards to units of local government and nonprofit organizations throughout New York State. This structure, called Local Program Administration, leverages the expertise of local partners and expands OCR's capacity statewide. ■
