City of Hudson Seeks Interest in Potential Grant Funding for Housing Rehabilitation

The City of Hudson seeks interest from landlords or residents who are homeowners needing funding for housing rehabilitation. 

The City of Hudson will submit an application under the Community Development Block Grant program (CDBG). The City will be eligible for up to $500,000 in funding through the New York State Office of Community Renewal (OCR).  If the City is awarded the funding, the City will establish a grant program to bring housing stock up to code. The grant will fund rehabilitation of owner-occupied or rental housing. Funds for owner-occupied housing (including owner-occupied 2/3 family housing) is for household at under 80% of the Area Median Income (approximately $54,000 for a family of 3). Preference will be given to households that are under 50% of the Area Median income (approximately $36,600 for a family of three). Owners of rental housing whose tenants are under 80% of the Area Median Income can also apply for rental rehabilitation support.

If you are a homeowner and/or landlord interested in participating in the program, please fill out the form at bit.ly/CDBGHudson, contact the Mayor’s office at 518-828-7217, or fill out a paper form at City Hall. The City will contact you, explain the program in detail, and obtain more information. Please be aware that, at this time, funding is neither guaranteed, nor does providing information secure you a priority status should the funding be awarded. However, funding is likely to be on a first-come, first-serve basis, with priorities given in the manner described above. Reaching out now to express interest increases the chances the City will receive this funding, and means the City can reach out to you directly should the funding be awarded.
