Several local Public Housing Authorities have been awarded part of more than $640,000 in funding through the CARES Act to help low-income families with rental assistance.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development provided the funds to support voucher programs that help provide affordable housing.

“Low-income families across upstate New York have been disproportionately impacted by this pandemic, and we must do our part to help them stay safe and get through these unprecedented times,” said Congressman Anthony Brindisi. “We all need to look out for each other during this crisis, and these funds will help ensure we have our neighbors’ backs. I’ll keep working with our communities to deliver more relief and resources to upstate New Yorkers.”

The Utica Housing Authority and the City of Utica have been awarded more than $235,000.

“These funds, which are a direct result of the strong partnership that we have with our delegation of federal representatives, including Congressman Brindisi, will allow our Section 8 housing program to continue to operate safely and efficiently in the coming months for the betterment of the community,” said Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri.
