Washington – (RealEstateRama) — Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced that Hudson River Housing will receive a federal investment of $286,333 to support efforts to develop and preserve affordable housing, revitalize and sustain neighborhoods, and create jobs. The investment is being made through NeighborWorks America, a public nonprofit established by Congress in 1978.
“Hudson River Housing gives families and seniors in need a hand up and a second chance,” said Rep. Maloney. “I’m thrilled we were able to secure this critical investment – it literally puts a roof over folks heads.”
“Hudson River Housing is thrilled to once again be awarded funds from NeighborWorks America to support critical housing and community development programs,” said Christa Hines, Executive Director of Hudson River Housing. “NeighborWorks America funding allows us to provide core programming while also remaining responsive to the evolving needs of our community.”
Since taking office in 2013, Rep. Maloney has secured nearly a million dollars in federal investments for Hudson River Housing. In 2014, he announced an investment of over $500,000 to combat homelessness in the veterans community. Last year, he secured an additional $200,000 to allow the organization to staff their shelter 24 hours a day.
NeighborWorks America is a public nonprofit organization, established by Congress in 1978 as the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation (Public Law 95-557). It supports and enhances a network of nearly 250 local and regional nonprofit partner NeighborWorks organizations who bring together residents, private-sector business leaders, and representatives of local government to create communities of opportunity.
