Three projects to rehabilitate 363 homes and apartments in Buffalo and Springville have been awarded grants from the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, a wholesale bank that serves financial institutions in New York and New Jersey.
Belmont Housing Resources for Western New York was awarded $130,000 for the Promise Neighborhood Home Improvement Program, which will repair 10 owner-occupied homes in the Central Park area. Additional funding will be provided by M&T Bank and the New Opportunities Community Housing Development Corp.
