From Lucas Metropolitan Housing's press release:
In 2020, the Board of Lucas County Commissioners made CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) funding available to local organizations to cover the cost of expenditures incurred due to the unprecedented COVID-19 public health emergency.
Lucas Metropolitan Housing received a generous grant of $297,787 to support enhanced cleaning, modifications to community rooms and internet connectivity for our residents and programs. Participants included the residents at Collingwood Green and Parqwood Apartments.
"During the pandemic, internet access has become a top priority for all - whether to continue education, obtain telehealth services, seek employment or meet other needs. LMH used the grant funds to obtain internet hotspots for homes with school age children and families. Priority was granted to families who have been unable to obtain a hotspot through the educational systems," stated President and CEO, Joaquin Cintron Vega.
