The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on Tues., May 1, officially presented a $1.1 million grant to Bailey-Holt House, the residence for people with AIDS at 180 Christopher St., for its Project FIRST program.
With representatives for Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Congressmembers Jerold Nadler and Charlie Rangel in attendance, Vincent Hom, HUD regional director, presented the ceremonial check to Regina Quattrochi, Bailey-Holt Houses’s chief executive. Project FIRST, which assists formerly incarcerated people with AIDS, is the only program in New York State to receive the grant and one of only 28 nationally.
The grant allows Bailey-Holt House to continue providing rent support and transitional housing to 27 households, and providing support services to help the individuals to greater independence.
