Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-21) announced that several communities in her district will be receiving $267,232 in federal Housing and Urban Development assistance through the CARES Act.

The act will provide $1.25 billion for Tenant-Based Rental Assistance, which funds the Housing Choice Voucher program, including $400 million for increased subsidy costs and $850 million for administrative and other expenses incurred by public housing authorities (PHAs), including support to maintain the health and safety of assisted individuals and families, and costs related to retention and support of participating owners.

Funding will be awarded as below:

Plattsburgh Housing Authority – $24,746
Herkimer Housing Authority – $5,956
Saratoga Springs Housing Authority – $9,136
Gloversville Housing Authority – $27,746
Whitehall Housing Authority – $3,894
Glens Falls Housing Authority – $108,746

Town of Corinth – $4,294
Town of Jay – $3,478

“I am pleased to announce that the recently passed CARES Act is providing important funding to our North Country communities during this challenging time,” Stefanik said. “These funds will be used to support the Section 8 housing program, assisting public housing agencies who work hard to provide for many low-income residents. I will continue to advocate for our North Country communities to receive federal support during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
