WASHINGTON D.C.—Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today announced that $6,622,682 will go to housing development programs for five communities in Iowa. The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) and HOME awards. These programs provide financing, development and improvement to public housing projects throughout the country. Harkin is a senior member of the Appropriations subcommittee that funds HUD.
“Grants that HUD provide are vital for the growth and prosperity of our communities in Iowa,” Harkin said. “For those who are feeling the effects of these tough economic times, this funding creates opportunity for assistance to those in need to acquire quality, affordable housing.”
