Over the last 19 years, 216 homes in the City of Buffalo have been preserved for sustainable living, thanks to Heart of the City Neighborhoods and the competitive funding we received. In 2017 alone, we expanded our reach from the West Side communities into Buffalo’s Ellicott District, working with the City of Buffalo to provided needed loans and grants for home repairs. We helped to support long-time business owners in our neighborhood with grant funding through the Buffalo Billion and NYS Housing Trust Fund Corporation to upgrade their facades and continue to serve their community. And we continued to work with homeowners in our West Side communities to provide grants and loans through the NYS Affordable Housing Corporation and City of Buffalo to make needed repairs to maintain homeownership.
At HOCN, we know the magic of the season is about giving. And for years to come, we look forward to continuing to do just that; Creating sustainable and affordable housing options. With your generous gift, Heart of the City Neighborhoods, Inc. can continue to sustain homes in Buffalo’s deserving communities.
You can help us make an even bigger impact by making a tax deductible donation of as little as $20.18 to get HOCN started in 2018!
