The following was posted by Massachusetts Representative (New Bedford) Antonio F. D. Cabral:
“The City of New Bedford is slated to receive $1,624,151 in funding through the CDB20-COVID Recovery Grant Fund and $805,424 in funding though the ESG20-COVID Recovery Grant, from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
These Community Development Block Grants and Emergency Shelter Grants will allow the City of New Bedford to better address homelessness and support transitional housing, and to obtain housing assistance for low-income individuals.
I am grateful for HUD’s quick action in disseminating these grant funds to high-need cities throughout the country, and for our Massachusetts congressional delegation’s persistence. New Bedford needs this emergency investment funding.”
