The Albany County Senior Housing Rehab Program

The Albany County Senior Housing Rehab Program

The County of Albany has partnered with the Albany County Rural Housing Alliance Inc. and Albany County Department for Aging to administer a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program funded through the NYS Division of Homes and Community Renewal for senior citizen homeowners.

Qualified applicants must live in a single family household, be at least 60 years of age, and reside in Albany County.

The grant program can assist with replacement of your roof, windows, doors, as well as updating electrical, plumbing and heating systems in your home.

This grant can also address handicap accessibility so you can remain independent in your home.
