WASHINGTON – Public housing authorities and Section 8 voucher programs in the Rio Grande Valley received several federal grants totaling $3,159,171 to help with coronavirus-related improvements and maintenance to local public housing programs, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn announced today.

The funding comes through the Department of Housing and Urban Development as part of the CARES Act, which was signed into law last month, under the Supplemental Public Housing Operating Funds program, which helps prevent, prepare, and respond to the Coronavirus Pandemic in public housing.

“The coronavirus outbreak has hit Texans hard, and as much as we can protect each other from its effects, we must,” said Sen. Cornyn.  “I’m grateful to the Trump Administration for making public housing in the Rio Grande Valley an important priority during the outbreak.”
