Kiryas Joel, Monroe NY - Herald Record Editorial Questions KJ Housing As Discrimination.
Kiryas Joel, Monroe NY - An article June 18 indicated and to some degree celebrated the fact that although a slump may exist within the general housing market, it does not in Kiryas Joel.
Some time ago, local constituents from New York City and Westchester were interested in moving to and qualified for subsidized housing. The individuals qualified for both affordable housing subsidies and for Section 8 housing. Next, they inquired as to the areas where they may seek the sort of housing they deemed qualified for from the state Division of Housing and Community Renewal and the state Housing Finance Agency.
The agencies furnished a comprehensive statewide list of housing developments already built and in the process of being developed in which the person would qualify. Within Orange County, several developments funded by state government, whether from the state Housing Finance Agency or others, from and with taxpayers’ money, were in Kiryas Joel.
The persons decided to explore the area and inquire as to the application process. They noticed that not all the signs on the construction sites of subsidized housing in Kiryas Joel were written in English. This made it very difficult for a person unable to read the sign to be properly informed and apply. read the full editorial in record here
