WASHINGTON D.C. (KDLM) - Six Minnesota communities including, Wadena have been awarded grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The vouchers totaling $960,000 will assist non-elderly populations impacted by Coronavirus and ensure residents of low income housing, including those with unique circumstances, in Fergus Falls, Wadena, Dilworth, Coldsprings and Little Falls receive necessary funding to protect their health and safety against COVID-19.
“Recently, we have learned a great deal about Coronavirus and the impact it has on all of our nation’s people,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. “Now, we must apply this knowledge to protect and save lives, especially when it comes to populations that face adversity in the form of mental, physical, and emotional challenges. Understanding the needs of these populations, Mainstream Vouchers provide targeted assistance to non-elderly populations with disabilities in The Department’s ongoing effort to provide resources to combat COVID-19.”
