Gardner Announces Colorado Will Receive $4.3 Million from HUD to Prevent COVID-19 Spread

Funding provided by the CARES Act to prevent spread of the coronavirus in public housing

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) announced today that public housing authorities in Colorado will receive a combined total of $4,386,072 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to support preventing, preparing, and responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in public housing.

“We must ensure communities all across Colorado are prepared to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Senator Gardner. “I’m pleased to see these funds awarded to Colorado to address the risk of COVID-19 in public housing and I’ll continue to make sure Colorado has the resources we need to get through this crisis together.”

This funding is in addition to the $34 million Colorado received from HUD earlier this month and was provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which was signed into law on March 27, 2020.
