Seven Mid-Hudson municipalities named Pro-Housing Communities

ALBANY The Mid-Hudson Valley is home to seven of the first twenty municipalities in New York to be designated as Pro-Housing Communities.

These localities will be given preference when applying for up to $650 million in state discretionary money as a result of their classification.

One of the initial places selected is Poughkeepsie, and on Wednesday, Mayor Yvonne Flowers met with the governor in Albany to address the matter.

In order to start submitting these applications and receive the extra cash to support some of these initiatives, we are looking for ways to get in touch with the proper individuals and open doors. This will reduce the amount of money we have to ask the taxpayers for, she said.

The Town of Red Hook and Village of Croton-on-Hudson, along with the cities of Kingston, Newburgh, New Rochelle, and White Plains, are among the other localities that have received program certification.

According to Kingston Mayor Steven Noble, a community’s ability to succeed and remain vibrant depends on the availability of high-quality, reasonably priced housing.
