Jamestown Housing Authority To Receive Over $350K In Federal Funds For Public Housing

JAMESTOWN – The City of Jamestown’s Housing Authority will receive over $350,000 in federal funds as part of an initiative to develop public housing throughout Upstate New York.

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer and U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced Friday that numerous housing authorities throughout Upstate New York would received a total of $67,074,447 million in federal funding for improvements to public housing. Jamestown will receive $356,086, while the City of Dunkirk’s Housing Authority will receive $444,974.

The funding was provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Public Housing Capital Fund and will be used for public housing development and improvement projects.

“Having a roof over your head is one of life’s basic necessities, and we must do everything we can to help provide those truly in need with a decent and affordable place to live. This federal investment will help support affordable housing initiatives throughout Upstate New York that assist families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities to find an affordable place to live,” said Senator Schumer.

Gillibrand said that affordable housing options would receive a boost from the funding.

“This federal funding will help ensure that we can preserve and improve the affordable housing options available to families throughout Upstate New York,” said Senator Gillibrand. “With these investments, local housing authorities will be able to help modernize public housing as well as provide programs to help low-income residents achieve greater economic security. I will continue to fight in the Senate to make sure that our communities have the resources necessary to support all New Yorkers.”

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Public Housing Capital Fund provides funding to housing authorities that can be used for capital management activities, including the development, financing, and modernization of public housing projects. These projects can include redesigning, reconstructing, and reconfiguring public housing sites and buildings; addressing safety code compliance needs; replacing obsolete utility systems and dwelling equipment; and investing in resident programs that help improve economic empowerment.
