Locating affordable, accessible housing has long been a crucial need of senior citizens and people with disabilities who wish to live independently in the community. In a concerted effort to address this concern, Independent Living of the Genesee Region (ILGR) is holding a FREE buffet-style Landlords’ Breakfast, to which owners who rent housing in Orleans County are invited. We are “rolling out the red carpet” by holding the event at Tillman’s Historic Village Inn, 14369 Ridge Road West, Albion, NY 14411, from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM on Wednesday, June 14, 2017.

ILGR staff will share details of two new housing subsidies available in the area. The Olmstead Housing Subsidy will assist Medicaid enrollees who are transitioning from a nursing home back into the community. The federal Rapid Re-Housing program will make funds available for an individual with a disability who has experienced homelessness. Both of these initiatives align with Independent Living’s philosophy of Education, Equality & Empowerment for People with Disabilities.

Landlords will have the opportunity to share applicant and tenant issues, and we will share information about the programs and wrap-around services we provide for renters. For those landlords who generally see a high turnover rate, you can learn how ILGR can help to support your tenants, to encourage a more prolonged tenancy.

Those who plan to attend must pre-register, so there will be enough food on-hand. For questions, or to RSVP, please call Donna Becker at (585) 815-8501, ext. 411.

This program is made possible through funds from Independent Living of the Genesee Region.
