New veterans' complex opens in Canandaigua

CANANDAIGUA--Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday, Nov. 8 the opening of a $10.7 million housing development in the town of Canandaigua. Liberty Apartments at Parkside offers 48 homes and support services for veterans and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. The complex is part of the governor's initiative to address the crisis of homelessness and strengthen services for veterans, and active services members and their families.
"The brave men and women who put their lives on the line in service to our country deserve a quality, affordable place to call home with the services they need to thrive in their communities," Cuomo said. "With this new apartment complex, we ensure these veterans have access to these critical services, helping the Finger Lakes region continue to thrive."
Liberty Apartments at Parkside, formerly Veterans for Canandaigua, includes five, two-story residential buildings with 48 apartments, 25 of which are set aside for homeless families and individuals. A separate community building houses a maintenance garage, laundry room, and Veterans Administration service delivery office. Twenty-five units are for veterans eligible for benefits from the Canandaigua VA Medical Center who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and their dependents.
The development is a partnership with New York State Homes and Community Renewal, the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, Rochester Housing Authority, The Finger Lakes Addictions Counseling and Referral Agency, Inc., Geneva Housing Authority, and the Canandaigua Veterans Administration. Under Governor Cuomo, New York State Homes and Community Renewal has financed the creation and preservation of more than 880 single and multi-family homes for veterans, and HCR's State of New York Mortgage Agency has funded 157 mortgages under the Homes for Veterans Program.
