ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York state has opened a supportive housing project in the Finger Lakes region for homeless veterans and individuals suffering from substance abuse.

The $2.6 million project is aimed at providing a place to live for those affected in Ontario, Seneca, Wayne and Yates counties. Residents are able to get necessary services with the goal of achieving stability and becoming active in the community.

The sites in the plan are in Waterloo, Geneva, Newark, and Penn Yan. Together, they feature 15 units with 22 beds, and state officials say they already are serving some individuals.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the grand opening on Friday.
