WASHINGTON - U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen (both D-Md.) have announced $1.8 million in federal funding for the development, financing, and modernization of public housing developments and for management improvements on the Eastern Shore.
This grant was awarded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Public Housing Capital Fund. Among the earmarks is $703,814 for the Crisfield Housing Authority.
In the fiscal year 2019 omnibus appropriations bill Senators Cardin and Van Hollen fought for increased funding for public housing - including an increase of $25 million for capital funds, which agencies use to update and maintain their housing stock.
