Nonprofits benefit from funding

New York State announced Dec. 28 that it planned to award $46 million in grants to help low- and moderate-income families make repairs or safety upgrades to their homes, replace manufactured homes and provide down-payment assistance for first-time buyers.

Nonprofits in the Mid-Hudson region will receive $3.125 million. The disbursements include $600,000 to Hudson River Housing for tenant rental assistance, $100,000 to Putnam County Housing Corp. for emergency repairs for elderly homeowners and $75,000 to Rebuilding Together Dutchess County for accessibility modifications.
