Walberg Announces CARES Act Grants for Local Housing Assistance
Jackson, MI – Congressman Tim Walberg today announced three new grants dispersed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide housing assistance for low-income residents in Michigan’s 7th District. The funding was authorized as a result of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act passed by Congress to provide relief from COVID-19.
“This unprecedented time calls for additional resources to protect many of our vulnerable populations in the fight against COVID-19,” said Walberg. “With an increased number of families struggling to pay their bills, I’m grateful to HUD Secretary Ben Carson for acting swiftly to get these grants into the hands of those in need."
7th District Grant Amounts:
Jackson Housing Commission – $52,574
Housing Services Mid-Michigan (Eaton County) – $11,014
