3 New Cassel Zombie Homes to be Given New Life Thanks to State Grant
December 29, 2022
The Town of North Hempstead has received more than $1 million in state grants to help turn abandoned houses into homes for first-time home buyers in New Cassel.
The town got $1.265 million from the state’s Restore New York Communities Initiative, which will help rebuild three abandoned homes in New Cassel as part of the New Cassel Workforce Housing Phase III Development.
“I am so proud that the town was one of the select communities across New York State to be awarded funds through the Restore NY Communities Grant,” Town Supervisor Jennifer DeSena said. “Once completed, these brand-new homes will improve the community, help stimulate the economy and aid in revitalizing New Cassel.”
The grant will help fill budget gaps created by demolition expenses, increased material and labor costs, and supply chain shortages. The three properties selected were identified as zombie homes by the town’s Zombie Home task force. These properties have been vacant for many years.
