Washington, D.C. – Today U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) applauded the announcement that the state of Colorado will receive a total of $34,006,065 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as a result of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which was signed into law on March 27, 2020.

“Communities all across the Centennial State are hurting right now as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is why I fought to get the CARES Act across the finish line,” said Senator Gardner.“These funds will support housing needs for Coloradans and help ensure that we get through this crisis together.”

These funds are made available through HUD’s Community Development Block Grant, Emergency Solutions Grant, and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS programs.
