Tax Credit Housing Opportunities
Well known for its development of group homes for people with developmental disabilities and for affordable housing for older adults, People Inc. continues to serve the community by bringing various audiences together for a unique, affordable and safe housing model. Our apartments provide safe and affordable living to a diverse group of people with and without disabilities who are income-eligible within the Western New York community. Various amenities are available.
Highland School Apartments
Located at 105 Highland Avenue, Tonawanda, this former Highland School was renovated into mixed-income and integrated apartments. People Inc. Highland School Apartments brings together a diverse group of people, including those with disabilities and the general public who are income-eligible.
The apartment building includes 35 one-bedroom and three two-bedroom handicap-adaptable apartments. The building was modified with safety features, a community and activity room and
on-site laundry facilities. A bus route is nearby and the location is accessible to a number of services and stores.
This is the first integrated project of its kind for People Inc. and the third time People Inc. has transformed a former school into housing. There are 10 apartments available for people with I/DD, but there is currently a waiting list for these secure, one-bedroom living spaces.
If you have someone in your caseload that is 18+ and in need of housing, complete an application to be added to the waiting list by clicking here. If you need more information, email email@example.com or call 716.880.3890.
