  • The State of New York Mortgage Agency (SONYMA) is providing credit enhancement to the long-term first mortgage financing.

  • The New York State Historic Preservation Office (NYSHPO) is providing state historic tax credits.

  • Bank of America is a construction loan letter of credit and has purchased all federal and state low-income housing and historic tax credits.

  • The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and Fairport Electric are providing energy efficiency grants.


In addition, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Town of Perinton, Monroe County, the Rochester and Fairport housing authorities and Five Star Bank all play critical roles in the preservation, rehabilitation, and ongoing services for residents.
