May 1, 2020
Press Release
‘Given the tremendous impact of this virus, it was essential to have an all-encompassing response to this pandemic, including resources to ensure proper housing assistance.’

SAN ANTONIO, TX — U.S. Representative Will Hurd (TX-23) today announced over $5.6 million in additional relief-funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This relief is the result of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which Hurd fervently supported and advocated on behalf of.

“I’m glad to announce more than $5.6 million in housing resources are coming to our communities because of the passage of the CARES Act. My colleagues and I were able to come together to pass this needed legislation, which, on top of providing stimulus checks and additional unemployment funding, is providing resources to our local communities to take care of our most vulnerable populations. Given the tremendous impact of this virus, it was essential to have an all-encompassing response to this pandemic, including resources to ensure proper housing assistance. These funds will prove to be critical as we begin reopening our local and state economies.”

CARES Act Supplemental Public Housing Operating Funds are operating funds that provide public housing authorities with financial resources for management, maintenance and resident services. These funds support preventing, preparing and responding to the Coronavirus Pandemic in public housing.
