Congressman Dan Kildee Announces $239,000 Federal Grant for Flint Housing Commission
Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05), Chief Deputy Whip of the House Democratic Caucus, today announced that the Flint Housing Commission will receive a $239,000 federal grant to help promote affordable housing for Flint families.
The Resident Opportunities and Self Sufficiency (ROSS) program grant, through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, will allow the Flint Housing Commission to help families with supportive services to increase their household income, reduce or eliminate their need for assistance, and make progress toward achieving economic independence.
“I am proud to announce this federal grant for the Flint Housing Commission. Investing in affordable housing for residents will help make our neighborhoods safer and stronger,” Congressman Kildee said. “Every family, regardless of their zip code, should have access to affordable and safe housing. I will continue to work to bring federal resources back to mid-Michigan,” said Congressman Kildee.
Since coming to Congress, Kildee has been a champion for Flint and other communities across Michigan’s Fifth Congressional District to receive federal grants for mid-Michigan. Kildee has recently announced federal grants for the Saginaw Housing Commission to promote affordable housing, for the Flint Mass Transportation Authority to improve transportation and for local Head Start education programs in Saginaw and Genesee Counties.
