DFW area to receive $7.8 million in second round of coronavirus recovery grants for public housing authorities

🕐 2 min read

Several DFW area cities and counties were awarded a total of $7,826,953 in another round of federal grants to help public housing authorities recover from the economic fallout of the novel coronavirus outbreak, U.S. Senator John Cornyn, R-Texas, announced.
The funding, which was appropriated by Congress in March, comes through the Department of Housing and Urban Development as part of the CARES Act.
“As Texans continue to grapple with the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, it’s critical that we continue to do everything we can to shield them from the economic fallout,” Cornyn said in a news release. “I’ll continue to do everything I can to encourage economic recovery in North Texas amid this deadly pandemic.”
Cornyn is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.
This is a Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program fund assignment for CARES Act – Administrative Fees – Second Award.
This funding action provides administrative fee budget authority to public housing authorities in accordance with Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) (Public Law 116-136), enacted on March 27, 2020 to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus for the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV), including the Mainstream Vouchers, the news release said.
At the time of this assignment, $472.2 million was available to fund CARES Act Administrative fee awards.
