Congresswoman María Elvira Salazar (R-FL) released the following statement after the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the Community Planning and Development Program Formula Allocations for Fiscal Year (FY) 2023:
“As Miami becomes an increasingly popular place to live, I remain committed to ensuring families have affordable and viable housing options in our area. These grants are vital to local municipalities around our country and will help residents with their housing needs.”
Salazar will continue to support policies, like Community Development Block Grants, that reduce the cost of living for Miami residents. Florida’s 27th congressional district is set to receive over $18.5 million dollars broken into three separate grant programs.
