New funding is coming to Gloucester County to help improve public health in the area.
Congressman Donald Norcross announced that the Housing Authority of Gloucester County will receive nearly $2 million in federal funding from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), to eliminate lead-based hazards and provide affordable housing for people with disabilities.
"When federal funding comes back to Gloucester County it helps all of our residents," said Gloucester County Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger. "Everyone deserves to live in safe, quality homes, and this funding will help provide a road for positive outcomes for families and children. We will continue to work with Congressman Norcross, service organizations and our partners in the Housing Authority to help bring federal grants like these back to Gloucester County.”
Norcross says everyone deserves safe, affordable place to call home and these grants will help ensure that our neighbors and families are living in healthy environments that are free from dangerous substances.
