Aug 16, 2023 12:32 pm

Mid-Hudson News reports that on Aug. 15 the Ulster County Legislature approved County Executive Jen Metzger’s proposed Housing Action Fund and used $15 million from the county’s $100 million budget surplus to seed the fund. The measure will support equitable and sustainable community development through the construction, development, revitalization, and preservation of affordable, workforce, and supportive housing. Metzger said, “The Housing Action Fund will catalyze the development of the housing we need and that people can afford, and is the most direct solution to addressing the housing crisis." Several local governments are discussing steps to help the affordable housing crisis locally, but few have taken concrete steps such as this. County Legislator Abe Uchitelle said the fund “marks the single greatest step our county has taken towards the goal of ensuring every resident has an affordable place to call home.” Read more about this story at Mid-Hudson News.
