$12.8 Million, 48-Apartment Affordable Housing Development Offers Supportive Services in Town of Sweden Investment Complements "Finger Lakes Forward" — The Region's Comprehensive Strategy to Revitalize Communities and Grow the Economy Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the completion of the second phase of the Frances Apartments complex in the town of Sweden in Monroe County. The new $12.8 million development offers 48 affordable homes with eight apartments set aside for residents who need supportive services in order to live independently. "Every New Yorker deserves a safe, decent and affordable place to call home," Governor Cuomo said. "This new supportive housing development builds upon our continued efforts and investments in communities across the state, providing 48 brand-new apartments for those in need of secure and supportive services." Frances Apartments II is part of Governor Cuomo's commitment to providing all New Yorkers with access to safe, affordable housing through the State's unprecedented $20 billion, five-year Housing Plan to make housing accessible and combat homelessness by building or preserving more than 100,000 affordable homes and 6,000 with supportive services. "Everyone deserves the decency of a roof over their heads and access to the support services needed to help enhance quality of life," Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul said. "Completion of Phase II of the Frances Apartments is a testament of fairness and inclusiveness, serving as a reflection of our values, which includes creating and preserving affordable housing options across the state. New York is committed to continuing to invest in our communities to help grow and strengthen the economy - building back better and creating opportunities for the future."
