Cartwright Announces More Than $7.6 million in HUD Funds to Address Homelessness

WASHINGTON, D.C. – April 10, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright announced that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded a total of $7,650,550 via its Continuum of Care (CoC) Program to several local agencies and organizations throughout Pennsylvania’s 17th congressional district to address homelessness.

“The lack of access to safe and affordable housing is a major public health concern in our country,” said Cartwright. “This past year, there were more than 15,000 homeless people in Pennsylvania alone. I am glad that the recipients of these funds will continue to provide invaluable housing services to vulnerable Pennsylvanians.”

The CoC Program provides federal funding to nonprofit organizations and local government agencies in an effort to rehouse homeless individuals, increase access to mainstream programs for the homeless, and promote self-sufficiency.

The following is a list of Continuum of Care renewal recipients and the amount provided:
