Hoeven, Heitkamp, Cramer Announce $2 Million in Grants to Improve Public Housing Across North Dakota
WASHINGTON – Senators John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp and Congressman Kevin Cramer announced today that 15 housing authorities in North Dakota will receive awards from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) totaling nearly $2 million. The funds will come from HUD’s Public Housing Capital Fund.
“Our local housing authorities are on the front lines of our state’s efforts to address the needs of North Dakota’s most disadvantaged residents,” the delegation said. “These funds will help them expand access to safe, affordable housing available for those who most need it, such as our elderly and people with disabilities, while also improving the quality of the housing and services already in place.”
Through the capital fund, HUD provides assistance to Public Housing Agencies for management improvements and the modernization and development of public housing. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Hoeven has worked to secure funding in annual appropriations bills for housing and community development programs that address North Dakota priorities, empowering communities in recovering from natural disasters and adapting to the state’s unprecedented growth.
Heitkamp is a member of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, which oversees HUD. Heitkamp, who has spent an extensive amount of time working with North Dakota stakeholders to address the state’s housing crisis, is using her position on the committee to expand and improve HUD programs to support North Dakota’s unique housing needs.
Congressman Cramer continues to support housing programs targeting those most in need while giving local communities greater flexibility to implement funds.
