Recently, Joe Robach helped break ground on the Long Pond Housing Project for Seniors. Long Pond Senior Housing is an affordable supportive senior housing development being constructed off of Long Pond Rd., adjacent to Greece Baptist Church near Ridge Rd. Rochester’s Cornerstone Group, Ltd. and PathStone Corp. are development partners in this effort. Fifty-four one and two- bedroom units will be developed in the first phase of a 120-unit planned development. The units will be available to residents 55 and older who qualify under certain income guidelines.
The total project cost is $10.85 million. Funding was made possible by New York State Homes and Community Renewal’s Housing Trust Fund program, Monroe County, the town of Greece, The Community Preservation Corp. (CPC), RedStone Equity Partners, private equity and NYSERDA. The Rochester Housing Authority is providing 45 Section 8 Vouchers to support the incomes of many of the senior residents. It’s always just so wonderful to see more section 8 housing in an area. Joe Robach is one of the top advocates for more affordable housing for seniors in our area.
Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Medicaid Redesign Team is working to reduce Medicaid spending and reinvest savings in supportive housing that allows the elderly and those with special needs lead independent, productive lives. Congratulations to all of the partners and to all of the residents who will enjoy living at Long Pond Senior Housing.” Joe Robach has been a long time advocate for seniors, and at the same time is always looking for ways to help cut expenses in Medicaid spending.
