UNIONDALE, N.Y., Aug. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Flushing Financial Corporation (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: FFIC), the parent holding company for Flushing Bank (the “Bank”), announced today that it has successfully secured two grants from the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York through its Affordable Housing Program (AHP).

The first grant was for $1.5 million dollars on behalf of the Town of Hempstead Housing Authority Program and its developer, Georgica Green Ventures, LLC. The funding will help subsidize the redevelopment of an existing facility, known as Dogwood Terrace, which is comprised of seven existing two-story residential buildings and a community center located in Franklin Square, NY. Upon completion, there will be 104 new affordable housing units available for seniors.

The second grant was on behalf of the North Hempstead Housing Authority for $1.1 million dollars for a project known as Laurel Homes located in Roslyn Heights, New York. This grant will help subsidize the redevelopment of nine existing residential buildings comprised of seventy-four residential units. Upon completion the project will include sixty-six new residential units with a mixture of one-to-five-bedroom affordable apartments, providing much needed living accommodations for families in need of affordable housing options for their immediate and extended family members.

John R. Buran, President and CEO of Flushing Bank, stated: “We have been supporting affordable housing opportunities through a variety of lending programs for many years. To date, with the addition of these two grants, we have sponsored $7.37 million dollars covering 497 affordable housing units through this program alone. We appreciate the support provided by the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York that helps make affordable housing available to senior citizens and other underserved members of the community. Projects such as these will ensure that senior citizens and other residents will continue to have access to quality affordable housing enabling them to remain in Nassau County with their families and friends.”
