Gardner Announces Colorado Will Receive $4.4 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 $4,449,742 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.

“Communities across the Centennial State are hurting as a result of COVID-19, and we must ensure that we are responding to this pandemic,” said Senator Gardner. “I’m pleased to see these funds have been awarded to public housing authorities in Colorado to address COVID-19 so we can get through this crisis together.” 

This funding is in addition to the $4.3 million that Senator Gardner announced that Colorado received from HUD earlier this week and the $34 million received earlier this month, and it was provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which was signed into law on March 27, 2020.
