“These grants will be a welcomed boost to the economy of South Texas,” said U.S. Rep. Hinojosa. “The funding being used for the construction and renovation of homes will not only create jobs in our communities, it will also meet the demand for public housing. I want to congratulate everyone from all of the Housing Authorities who are working very hard to help our residents in need.”
These are the housing authorities from Congressional District TX-15 and the amount they will each receive:
Beeville — $248,031
Three Rivers — $46,127
Housing Authorities like the one in Edinburg will be using their funding for the construction of new homes, renovation of older homes which will include upgrading electric utilities and plumbing. The grant funds will also be used for maintenance of parking lots, sidewalks and mailboxes.
