Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a nearly $11 million investment to build and preserve 123 affordable apartments in the Mohawk Valley.

A total of $5.2 million will fund the demolition of the vacant Sunset school, on Sunset Avenue – and construct a new four-story building with 60 apartments.

And $5.6 million will fund the rehabilitation of Eastern Garden, in Herkimer. This will be a mixed-use housing development.

"These critical investments will strengthen communities in every corner of the state by creating and preserving affordable homes for families, veterans, seniors and some of our most vulnerable neighbors," Governor Cuomo said in a statement. "By strategically revitalizing neighborhoods throughout New York, we can breathe new life into these communities, making them more vibrant places to live for generations to come."

The project also includes a new head start classroom on another Herkimer House Authority Property.

The funding is part of $175.4 million the state is awarding to build or preserve more than 2,185 affordable apartments and revitalize communities across New York's 10 regions.
