Catholic Charities of Chemung/Schuyler recently announced that it has been awarded seven federal and three state contracts representing more than $1 million in local housing assistance.
The largest contract totals $757,440 and represents federal funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This money will be put toward six Catholic Charities renewal projects and one new initiative to provide permanent housing.
A contract for $246,443 — issued via the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance — is funding the Solutions to End Homelessness Program (STEHP). This initiative operates through Catholic Charities’ Emergency Services Program, providing comprehensive supportive services aimed at housing stabilization.
In addition, Catholic Charities has secured two contracts through the New York State Supportive Housing Program (NYSSHP). One, in the amount of $62,400, will support Catholic Charities’ Lasting Success Program, providing transitional housing for young adults aging out of the foster-care system and facing homelessness. The second award, for $28,800, will support Catholic Charities’ Miller Manor property, a 12-bed permanent housing program for adults with mental disabilities who are at risk of homelessness.
