Deputy Secretary Jones Visits White Plains Housing Authority
Deputy Secretary Maurice Jones, accompanied by Acting Regional Administrator Mirza Orriols, recently visited Westchester County and toured the White Plains Housing Authority. He met its Executive Director, Mack Carter, who showed him the progress being made in its recent receipt of CFCF funds. The Capital Fund Education and Training Community Facilities Program (CFCF) was designed to provide public housing authorities with funding to construct new facilities, rehabilitate existing structures or purchase facilities that provide early childhood and adult education, and/or job training programs for public housing residents. The White Plains Housing Authority is using its CFCF funds for the construction of a new mixed-use building that will contain 103 residential units plus a Community Education Facility to be operated by the City of White Plains Youth Bureau. Additionally, a new, free-standing building will be built a short distance away. The entire project comprises a myriad of funding sources that include CFCF funding, Federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits, New York State Housing Credits, and funding from New York State Home for Working Families.
