The following Monroe County projects were awarded funding:

The YWCA of Rochester and Monroe County – $4.1 million to develop 12 units and 30 beds of emergency housing in Rochester for homeless families. The project, Persimmon Place, will substantially rehabilitate a vacant former youth shelter and include health, safety, and accessibility upgrades.

Soldier On Inc. – $6.2 million to develop 45 units and 45 beds of permanent supportive housing in Rochester for homeless veterans. The project, Gardner’s Lofts, will rehabilitate a historic five-story industrial building and feature a support service space, a community room with a kitchen, private meeting rooms for telehealth visits, a fitness center, and an outdoor gathering space.
