The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will award $748,234 to Fort Worth Housing Solutions to support its work in assisting Fort Worth residents through HUD’s Housing Choice Voucher Program. These funds come directly from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the third coronavirus relief package signed into law.

“Many public housing agencies on the frontlines of ensuring that all in our communities are safe and with shelter have seen their own resources impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, as have the low-income families, seniors and those with disabilities who they serve,” U.S. Rep. Kay Granger of Fort Worth said.

“I’m happy to see that the Housing Authority of Fort Worth (now Fort Worth Housing Solutions) is receiving nearly $750,000 to help support the health and safety of the individuals and families receiving assistance through HUD’s Housing Choice Voucher Program. These grants will provide the Housing Authority of Fort Worth with the added resources it needs to keep our most at-risk populations healthy and safe throughout these trying times.”
