The Fulton County Community Heritage Corporation (FCCHC) is a private not-for-profit corporation with offices in Gloversville, New York. FCCHC is engaged in housing and community development activities in Fulton County, New York. It is the mission of FCCHC to improve overall housing conditions, provide new housing opportunities and improve the quality of life for the residents of Fulton County and the region, with emphasis on programs and projects that primarily benefit persons and families of low and moderate income.

FCCHC is a Rural Preservation Company, funded under the Rural Preservation Program administered by the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR). The Rural Preservation Program (RPP) provides administrative funding which allows FCCHC to undertake a variety of housing related activities and programs. RPP support has allowed FCCHC to identify local housing needs, provide technical assistance to local municipalities, prepare applications for funding to a variety of sources for programs of housing rehabilitation, home ownership and housing development and to administer programs for which funding is received.

Housing rehabilitation and home repair assistance programs have always been a focus of FCCHC.  These programs are an effort to remove substandard housing conditions for lower income families, to stabilize the residential tax base, preserve the existing housing stock, and improve the appearance of local municipalities. FCCHC has previously secured funding, both directly and on behalf of local municipalities, from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the New York State HOME Program, the New York State RESTORE Program, the Governorís Office for Small Cities, and the NYS Office of Community Renewal. Programs administered by FCCHC have provided financial assistance for housing rehabilitation benefiting a number of low and moderate income households in the Towns of Mayfield, Oppenheim, Ephratah, Caroga, Stratford and Johnstown and a program providing both housing rehabilitation assistance and assistance for mandatory sewer hook-ups in the Village of Mayfield. FCCHC has also administered programs that have provided emergency home repair assistance to the elderly under the RESTORE program throughout Fulton County. programs in several Fulton County municipalities.

FCCHC has also increased the number of available housing units in Fulton County through the development and management of the Petoff Garden Apartments I and II projects in the Town of Mayfield. These projects contain a total of 64 one-bedroom apartments for occupancy by low and moderate income senior citizens, aged 62 and over. The Petoff Garden apartments I project contains 40 units and was completed in 1992. The Petoff Garden apartments II project contains 24 units and was completed in 2000. The total cost of these projects exceeds $4 million.

FCCHC has helped to stabilize communities and assist low and moderate income families to achieve the dream of home ownership through programs of down payment and closing cost assistance. These programs have assisted 18 first time home buyers in several Fulton County municipalities.

FCCHC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.  FCCHC offices are located in the Howard S. Argersinger Community Services Building, 73 North Main St., Suite 107, Gloversville, New York with a mailing address of P.O. Box 646 Gloversville, New York 12078.
