Assemblyman Jeff Gallahan (R,C-Manchester) is announcing $11.2 million in funding from New York Homes and Community Renewal to Lafayette Apartments and Huntington Apartments to build affordable housing for veterans and the elderly in Seneca County. Lafayette Apartments in the village of Waterloo will receive $6.1 million to convert a vacant historic school building into 33 affordable apartments for seniors 62 and older, with six supportive homes for senior households who require assistance to live independently. Huntington Apartments in Seneca Falls will receive $5.1 million to transform an historic vacant factory into 53 apartments, with 27 units reserved for veterans experiencing homelessness.
“I am proud to announce the funding of these much-needed community projects that will help ensure both our nation’s heroes and our elderly have roofs over their heads,” said Gallahan. “I applaud Homes and Community Renewal for their commitment to the Finger Lakes, and I look forward to witnessing the positive impact these projects will have on the lives of people in need in our community.”
