WASHINGTON – The US Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced $2.2 million in funding for two Dutchess County economic development programs.
Just under $1.4 million is targeted in Community Development Block Grant funding and $844,000 will go to the HOME Investment Partnership Program.
The county will use the funding to address needs and to support affordable housing initiatives, provide essential services, and expand economic development.
“CDBG and HOME investment funding help revitalize neighborhoods throughout Dutchess County and facilitates the construction of affordable housing throughout the county without burdening the local taxpayer,” said County Executive Marcus Molinaro. “These federal dollars help ensure Dutchess County continues to be a place where everyone comes together to help their neighbors, by providing infrastructure upgrades, resident home improvement assistance, and supporting senior citizens and the disabled.”
The funding was announced by Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand.
