Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack today announced that housing authorities in Iowa City and Muscatine and the Eastern Iowa Regional Housing Authority, which covers Cedar and Clinton Counties and the City of Bettendorf in Scott, will receive a total of $174,051 to provide funding for their communities to create partnerships to assist low income families in obtaining employment. This funding will help spur economic independence and self-sufficiency. The funding is provided through the U.S. Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Housing Choice Voucher Family Self-Sufficiency Program.
“Helping communities provide low-income families with the tools needed to find employment is a win-win situation,” said Loebsack. “It is important at a time when the economy is still struggling to provide folks an opportunity to get the training they need to be able to support and care for their families.”
Details of the grant funding follow.
Eastern Iowa Regional Housing Authority - $135,678
Iowa City Housing Authority - $119,673
Muscatine Municipal Housing Agency - $54,378###
