-

WASHINGTON, D.C. – May 5, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) today announced $6,787,508 in funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to public housing authorities across West Virginia. The funding will be used for operations and management efforts to help ensure safe and decent public housing across the state.

“In West Virginia, we understand the importance of supporting one another in times of need,” Senator Manchin said. “We should do everything we can to make sure that our neighbors have the necessary resources to get back on their feet, contribute to their communities and provide for their families. That starts with offering them the basic necessity of decent housing. These funds will help provide a safe home for West Virginians who are struggling and will also promote one of our state’s top priorities: neighbors helping neighbors.”

“Public housing helps our most vulnerable citizens, and this funding will help disabled and low-income individuals find access to safe and stable living conditions,” said Senator Capito. “West Virginians always look out for one another, especially in times of need, and this funding will be a big help to our friends and neighbors in need of a place to call home.”
