Congressman Anthony Brindisi today announced $641,817 in grant funding for Public Housing Authorities across New York’s 22nd District. Brindisi secured the funding through the bipartisan CARES Act in March.
The CARES Act funds come from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and can be used by Public Housing Authorities to help families assisted by Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) and Mainstream vouchers prevent, prepare for and respond to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Low-income families across Upstate New York have been disproportionately impacted by this pandemic, and we must do our part to help them stay safe and get through these unprecedented times,” said Brindisi. “We all need to look out for each other during this crisis, and these funds will help ensure we have our neighbors’ backs. I’ll keep working with our communities to deliver more relief and resources to Upstate New Yorkers.”
