The Monroe County’s HUD Consortium is requesting we share this information with residents in our community
There is a flyer with program information for a free government program to help homeowners with needed home improvements. This is a scam that is (re)surfacing in our area for Home Improvement. Here is a link to a 2020 notice from NYS Office of the Aging alerting residents that this is not a government program. Please help us share this information to residents in your area or participants in your program so they do not fall victim to a scam. https://aging.ny.gov/news/new-york-state-office-aging-issues-guidance-against-government-grant-scams. If you know of someone that may have been victim of a scam, please direct them to call Lifespan, 585-244-8400/866-454-5110 toll-free or New York State Attorney General’s Office: 800-771-7755.
If residents/owner-occupied homeowners have a home improvement need, please let them know about the County’s Home Improvement Program. The Home Improvement Program brochure and application packet can be found https://www.monroecounty.gov/planning-community.
