Mobile-Home-Replacement-Grant

GENESEO, N.Y., Nov. 30, 2022 — The New York State Office of Community Renewal recently announced that Livingston County has been awarded $550,000 in funding through its Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), which will be used to fund a Mobile and Manufactured Home Replacement Project in partnership with Cattaraugus Community Action, Inc. (CCA) and the Livingston County Land Bank Corporation. 

 

The project will fund the removal and replacement of a select amount of qualifying owner-occupied, dilapidated mobile homes in the County at no cost to the respective homeowner. To qualify, properties must meet condition screens set by CDBG and must be owner-occupied. Additionally, owners must be of low to moderate income and meet qualifications established by the grant.

 

“The Mobile Home Replacement Project will ensure a number of qualifying homeowners in Livingston County have access to safe, stable and affordable housing,” said David L. LeFeber, Chairman of the Livingston County Board of Supervisors.   “I am glad that the New York State Office of Community Renewal recognized the value of this project.  I would like to thank the County’s partners at Cattaraugus Community Action, Inc. and the Livingston County Land Bank for their support of this project and hard work putting together a strong funding application.”

 

Livingston County and CCA expect to begin administering the program in 2023.

 

“Cattaraugus Community Action looks forward to its partnership with Livingston County and the Livingston County Land Bank Corporation in delivering this life changing program,” said Ken Tomczak, Chief Operating Officer of Energy and Housing at CCA. “Safe, affordable and sustainable housing is an integral part of CCA’s mission and we are excited to deliver these services to Livingston County.”
