City Of Frederick, Other Md. Jurisdictions, Receiving Federal Housing Money

The funds come from the US Department of Housing & Urban Development.

Washington DC (KM) More than $4-million in federal housing assistance is being made available to help low income Marylanders afford quality, safe and stable housing. The State’s Congressional Delegation, Senator Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen, and Representatives David Trone, Jamie Raskin, Steny Hoyer, Dutch Ruppersburger, John Sarbanes, Anthony Brown and Kweisi Mfume, announced that $4,258,979 of  federal assistance is being made available to low income residents so they can have affordable, quality, safe and stable housing.

The City of Frederick is receiving $96,876 under this program.

The assistance comes from the US Department Housing and Urban Development’s New  Incremental  Housing Choice Vouchers Program.

“Everyone deserves a safe place to call home. But we know housing costs are eating up too large a share of lower-income residents’ budgets, often leaving them with impossible choices between paying for rent, or meeting daily needs,” the Maryland Congressional Delegation said in a statement. “This federal relief will help those facing hardship find suitable housing for their families as we continue working to increase access to affordable housing in their communities.”
