Gardner Applauds More Than $5.6 Million for Colorado Housing Authorities to Respond to COVID-19

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) today applauded the announcement that numerous public housing authorities in Colorado will receive a combined total of $5,694,000 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to help prevent, prepare for, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in public housing.

'We must continue working to ensure Coloradans across all four corners of our state are receiving the relief they need to get through COVID-19,' said Senator Gardner. 'I'm pleased to see this important funding delivered to several public housing authorities in Colorado to help address this pandemic.'

This funding is made available by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and is in addition to the $44 million that Senator Gardner announced Colorado received from HUD in June, the $2.4 million and $12.7 million Colorado received from HUD in May, and the $4.4 million, $4.3 million, and $34 million Colorado received from HUD in April.
