More than $11 million granted for housing and homeless assistance in central Illinois

WASHINGTON D.C. (WMBD) — U.S. Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) announced that Central Illinois communities will receive a total of $11.7 million in federal grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for affordable housing and homelessness programs.

“Everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to call home,” Durbin said. “These federal programs are critically important to addressing homelessness and housing insecurity throughout Central Illinois, especially at a time when so many are facing economic hardship as a result of COVID-19. I will continue working alongside Senator Duckworth to bring federal resources to communities in need during this challenging time.”
