Holy Rosary applications available

Applications are now being accepted for the lottery for Holy Rosary Apartments and Strategic Infill, a new affordable-housing project for individuals and families that is being developed by Providence Housing Development Corp., an affiliate of diocesan Catholic Charities.

Crews broke ground Aug. 3 on the $15-million project, which will convert the former Holy Rosary Church in Rochester into a community center and will convert the school, convent and rectory, into 35 affordable apartments for rent. Twenty-five single-family affordable homes for rent also will be added throughout the surrounding Edgerton neighborhood as part of the project.

The project is made possible by $8.2 million in equity provided by Enterprise Community Partners, an FHLB forgivable loan for $645,000 through First Niagara, and the Martin Luther King Fund through the United Way for $10,000. Additional funding of $3.5 million is made possible through the state Housing Trust Fund, and $725,000 through City HOME program.

The housing is for families whose income is less than half of the area median income, which is $24,050 for one person. Rents range from $425 for a studio apartment to $759 for a four-bedroom single-family home. Occupancy and income requirements apply.

Rental applications will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, to be placed on the wait list using a random lottery; after that, applicants will be placed on a wait list in the order they are received. Preference will be given to homeless households referred through Catholic Family Center, project-based voucher holders and others on the Rochester Housing Authority Waitlist.

Applications are available by calling Providence Housing at 558-328-3228, ext. 1393. Occupancy will start in January 2013 and continue throughout the year.
