The Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty cut the ribbon on a new 78-unit residence facility for low-income senior citizens last week.
The facility, called Council Towers VI, at 155-25 71st Ave. in Pomonok, was funded by a variety of federal and city agencies and was built on land donated by the city Housing Authority.
The rent at the facility is designed to be 30 percent of a seniors’ household income. That way residents can have more money to spend on necessities such as food, clothing and medication, according to the council.
