The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson today announced the allocation of over $2.5 million in funds for housing in Maryland as part of the fourth round of Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act awards.
Today HUD announced $2,598,236 to local housing authorities and the Maryland Department Of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) as a portion of the over $75 million dollars awarded by the Department nationwide. This brings HUD’s total awards through CARES Act funding to over $4.75 billion. The latest round will provide affordable housing to non-elderly people living with disabilities through the Section 811 Mainstream Housing Choice Voucher Program.
“As we continue to fight this invisible enemy, we are working quickly and effectively to ensure public housing authorities nationwide are receiving the necessary funding needed to keep their residents safe,” said Secretary Carson. “This wave of relief funds will provide additional housing choice vouchers to residents living with disabilities, allowing them to live safely and independently through these unprecedented times.”
