(Washington, D.C.) October 1, 2021 -- Council of Large Public Housing Authorities (CLPHA) Executive Director Sunia Zaterman released the following statement urging Congress not to cut proposed funding for public housing and rental assistance in the Build Back Better reconciliation bill:
Yesterday HUD announced awards totaling $10 million to 55 public housing authorities for emergency safety and security improvement grants. Six CLPHA members were among those PHAs awarded grants: New York City Housing Authority, Seattle Housing Authority, Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority, Sacramento Housing & Redevelopment Agency, Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority, and the Chester Housing Authority. These grants will be used for the purchase and installation of carbon monoxide monitors, surveillance cameras, security doors, and fencing.
From WKRC 12 Cincinnati:
A nine-story apartment building that provides hundreds of affordable housing units is getting a major facelift. The Pinecrest building in Price Hill hadn't been updated since the '70s.
The work is part of a $1-billion transformation project through the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority. CMHA is using tax credits to get the work done without raising the rent.
