it was announced that an anonymous donor would pay the back rent for all Hudson Housing Authority tenants who were in arrears. The source of the money, which totaled $60,000, was not identified, but the Hudson/Catskill Housing Coalition was mentioned often as having played a role in the philanthropic act.
Last night, at the meeting of the Hudson Housing Authority Board of Commissioners, Jeffrey Dodson, executive director of HHA, announced that the anonymous donor no longer wished to be anonymous. Dodson revealed that The Spark of Hudson, with its "sister organization" the Eutopia Foundation, had provided the funds to clear all the overdue rent for HHA tenants. The Eutopia Foundation also partnered with The Spark of Hudson to fund the second cohort of HudsonUP, the universal basic income program in Hudson.
