HUD grant will support affordable housing in Frederick County
U.S. Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine announced $2,056,299 in federal funding to support the development of 11 housing units in Frederick County to provide affordable housing to lower-income elderly households.
The funding, available through the Section 202 program of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), will allow older adults to live independently while also receiving supportive services.
“We are pleased that these federal funds will provide support for affordable housing in Frederick County,” the senators said in a statement. “These new housing units will help improve the quality of life for older adults in the community.”
The Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly program provides capital advances to finance the development of housing for low-income elderly residents.
The program expands the supply of affordable housing with supportive services for the elderly such as cleaning, cooking, and transportation.
