From WBAL NewsRadio:
Sens. Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen on Friday announced a $19.8 million federal grant to develop, finance and modernize Baltimore City public housing.
The grant was awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Public Housing Capital Fund.
“Every Marylander – every American – deserves a safe and affordable place to call home. Many families in Baltimore benefit from access to public housing developments, but too many more remain on waiting lists without other good options,” Cardin said in a statement. “These federal funds will support the continued effort to expand and improve affordable housing options for future generations, which uplifts our local communities and strengthens our local economies.”
