WASHINGTON— Arkansas’ Congressional Delegation has announced $4.7 million dollars in funding to support the prevention, preparation and response to the coronavirus pandemic in public housing.

“Providing these resources is necessary to supporting ongoing efforts to combat the coronavirus in Arkansas. These investments will protect the lives of vulnerable individuals in our state,” members said.

The funding is part of a nationwide disbursement in public housing operating funds allocated by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which recently became law with the support of the Arkansas delegation.

HUD awarded funding to the following local Arkansas Public Housing Agencies:

Prescott Housing Authority-$50,209

Hope Housing Authority-$74,712

Howard County Housing Authority-$63,736
