Clovis Housing Authority to receive grant

CNJ staff

The Clovis Housing Authority will receive $10,836 of nearly $200,000 in Housing and Urban Development dollars for rental assistance provided to families.

Seven state agencies are part of nearly 600 nationwide to receive $150 million in funding through HUD’s Housing Choice Voucher Program because they had additional leasing or experienced other unforeseen circumstances in 2009.

Last February, HUD issued a notice informing public housing agencies that they could apply for the funding under four categories, and reviewed approximately 1,000 submissions.
