Help for Homes this Spring

Rensselaer County Housing Resources Receives Funding Awards for Housing Improvements

RCHR is proud to have received a $250,000 New York State HOME Program Award to assist income-eligible Rensselaer County homeowners (outside the City of Troy) with housing rehabilitation.  Funds can be used for furnaces, roofs, windows, etc. 

In addition, RCHR received an award of $150,000 from the NYS Access to Home Program. These funds can be used to modify the homes of people with disabilities to make them more accessible. Examples are: ramps, bathrooms, widening doorways. Access to Home funds can be used in both owner-occupied and rental units anywhere in Rensselaer County. RCHR hopes to have the funds available in the late spring.
