The state of New York is going to see some renovations for neighborhoods in need, thanks to $7.4 million in funding approved for various home rehabilitation needs in the state.

Funding is being provided through the New York State Homes and Community Renewal Affordable Home Ownership Development Program.

The same program has previously awarded $192 million to create or improve over 9,700 homes throughout the state.

Through this housing development program, homeowners are receiving the assistance they need to help maintain the American Dream,” New York Gov. Cuomo said. “These awards provide the support needed to help keep our neighborhoods viable and strong, as New York continues to take necessary steps to ensure families have access to decent housing across the state.”

Governor Cuomo says that the funding will be used to make improvements to existing owner-occupied single-family and multi-family homes that are for sale, including condominiums and co-operatives.

It will also be used to acquire and rehabilitate single and multi-family homes, condominiums and co-ops, plus cooperatives including dilapidated manufactured homes.

Funding awarded by region included those as shown below:
