Cantwell Announces New $1.07M Housing Grant for Kitsap County
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) announced that Kitsap County will receive a $1.07 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program.
The CDBG program helps support home ownership, housing rehabilitation, public improvements, and economic development projects in communities throughout the country. Since 1974, the program has invested more than $153 billion in communities nationwide, and the program has helped leverage $4.09 in non-CDBG funding for every $1.00 of funding given out through the program.
Senator Cantwell has long been a supporter of the CDBG program, signing a letter in April 2018 supporting funding for the program. She has also prioritized investment in affordable housing, helping to secure nearly $3 billion in additional affordable housing funding in March 2018 and introducing legislation earlier this year to increase investment in affordable housing and provide more resources and stronger protections for at-risk groups.
