Capito, Manchin Announce More Than $32 Million for Affordable Housing in West Virginia

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), members of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $32,559,963 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to preserve and expand affordable housing options and provide assistance for low-income families.

“Community Development Block Grants are integral to economic development efforts in West Virginia, and programs that support housing infrastructure make our communities better for all. By providing safe housing and opportunity for those struggling, we give those individuals and families a chance to better their lives,” Senator Capito said.

“Investment in public housing infrastructure is critical to the health of our communities. Everyone, no matter their circumstances, deserves to have a roof over their head. These funds benefit important housing and community revitalization projects across the state. Access to affordable housing helps individuals to get back on their feet and give them another opportunity to contribute to their communities. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee I applaud this funding for West Virginia and I will continue to fight to make sure that everyone has a roof over their head,” Senator Manchin said.
