Affordable Housing Program
Connecticut Court Townhouses
An Affordable Housing Program by the Advocacy and Resource Center.
Located off Connecticut Rd, Plattsburgh NY.
A truly integrated living environment for people who are income as well as OPWDD eligible.
A 40 unit housing development with 10 set aside units reserved for individuals who are eligible for OPWDD services.
The 10 set aside units are NOT certified through OPWDD. Individuals with ID/DD living in this housing development benefit from living a fully integrated life in a community with opportunities to develop close personal friendships/relationships, have a job, and recreational/ social opportunities.
OPWDD Assistive Supportive/ISS rental subsidies may be available to OPWDD eligible renters, based on their income level. Clinton County ARC maintains the ISS housing rent subsidy contract for these apartments as well as a wait list for OPWDD eligible people. All tenants must meet income requirements in order to be able to rent an apartment in the development.
Rents will be based on less than 50% of the area median income (AMI), a designation by HUD, meaning that they are all affordable to low income individuals.
(One bedroom range from $578-716, two bedroom $656-852 and three bedroom $797-990 per month; rent includes electric, water and sewer).
The Property Management Company is responsible for interviewing and ensuring application process is completed for interested parties and to ensure eligibility compliance and maintaining a wait list for future tenants as vacancies occur.
There are nine separate buildings in the development, 8 housing units, with a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units available in each building; (presently, only one bedroom apartments are reserved for OPWDD eligible individuals) and one community building that houses the property management company, an office space for meetings, an area for community gatherings and a small laundry area with several coin operated washers and dryers for tenant use. All apartments have washer and dryer hook ups, central AC and natural gas heat. Onsite parking is available to all that rent units. There is a small playground for housing project tenants and their children to use.
100% Smoke and Pet Free Units.
The location of the townhouses gives opportunity for easy access to the local community. The CCPT bus has a bus shelter/stop right at the main entrance to the housing project. Grocery stores, churches, banks, pharmacies, restaurants/fast food establishments, hardware stores, gas stations, etc. are within walking distance.
