Albion approves first rental assistance recipient

By Tom Rivers, Editor Posted 23 August 2017 at 10:18 am

ALBION – The village has approved the first recipient of a new downtown rental assistance program.

Terri Jordan opened a new business at 6 East Bank Street last month. She has been approved for $200 a month in assistance the next six months. The village’s local development corporation will chip in $100 a month and the Orleans Economic Development Agency also will contribute $100 monthly to help promote businesses in the downtown.

Jordan opened Bird & Matilda’s Gift Boutique, which sells organic and non-organic baby clothes, toys and blankets. She also has a small selection of home décor products, and handcrafted skin care products, including soap, lotion and sugar scrub.

The village’s rental assistance program provides a maximum of $300 a month over six months. The program won’t pay the entire rent, but will cover a percentage of the costs.

Village officials will have a 4 p.m. public meeting on Sept. 6 to discuss the rental subsidy program with the downtown business community. The meeting will be at the Village Hall, 35 East Bank St.

For more information on the program, contact Ron Vendetti, the village’s code enforcement officer, at (585) 589-7229, by email at or by mail at 35 E. Bank St., Albion, NY 14411.
