CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (AP) - Work has begun on a $37 million affordable housing project in a Buffalo suburb.

The 110-unit Apple Blossom Apartments in Cheektowaga is utilizing more than $40 million worth of state financial support for the project.

The privately development residences will offer affordable rents and on-site services to low-income residents with a special focus on individuals with mental illness.

State officials announced the start of construction this week.

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul says the project is part of the state’s commitment to expanding housing opportunities to combat homelessness.
