RUPCO has partnered with WMC Westchester Medical Center, City of Kingston and NoVo Foundation to jump-start the Home Regen Project. Short for “regeneration,” the Home Regen will renovate ten vacant and distressed homes in the City of Kingston to create homeownership opportunities for low-moderate income first-time homebuyers.
The Kingston buildings included in the program are:
– 232 Elmendorf St. – 22 Staples St.
– 33 Franklin St. – 98 Downs St
– 44 Franklin St. – 50 Crane St
– 54 Van Deusen St. – 89 Newkirk Ave.
– 3 Tenbroeck Ave. – 112 Hone St.
These homes are a mix of single-family and multi-family houses that will undergo complete gut renovations to be transformed into energy-efficient homes. RUPCO has begun remediation work on two properties and anticipates that all the homes will be completed and sold by the end of 2024. In addition, RUPCO is proud to partner with Ulster YouthBuild – a job training educational, leadership, and community development program for out-of-school low-income young adults – for the rehabilitation of 50 Crane St.
Interested in purchasing one of the Regenerate Kingston Project Homes?
The first step is to attend one of our Homebuyer Information Sessions for potential first-time homebuyers. The session is a brief 1-hour live zoom meeting that discusses the benefits of applying for homebuyer counseling and the current resources available for homebuyers.
