Senators Specter and Casey Announce Over $212.1 Million

Award to Public Housing in Pennsylvania from Stimulus Funds

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senators Arlen Specter (R-PA) and Bob Casey (D-PA) announced today that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will allocate $212,155,156 million in federal funding to public housing authorities in Pennsylvania through the Public Housing Capital Fund Program.  The funds are enabled by the recently enacted American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

“I am pleased to see Pennsylvania’s public housing benefit from the stimulus funds,” Senator Specter said. “Affordable housing and community redevelopment is vitally important to the future of our communities across the Commonwealth.”

“I am happy that these recovery funds are being allocated so quickly to housing authorities across Pennsylvania,” Senator Casey said.  “These funds will help provide Pennsylvanians to build new public housing developments and modernize existing ones.”

HUD’s Capital Fund Program provides annual funding to public housing authorities to develop, finance and/or modernize the public housing in their communities. This funding can also be used to make large-scale improvements such as new roofs; and for the replacement of plumbing and electrical systems to more energy efficient standards.
