Representative Stephanie Murphy announced this weekend that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will be sending around $20 million to Central Florida, which includes money being sent to Orange and Seminole Counties and to Orlando “to expand the supply of affordable housing, revitalize communities, reduce homelessness, and help individuals with HIV/AIDS find suitable homes.”

Specifically, Orange County will be receiving $9.7 million and Seminole County will be receiving $2.8 million through three programs: the HOME Investment Partnership orgram, the Community Development Block Grant and the Emergency Solutions Grant program.

The same programs will be providing funding for Orlando with the addition of the Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS program. Collectively, Orlando will be receiving $7.4 million.

Speaking on the matter, Murphy commented that “Central Florida is among the fastest-growing regions in the country, but the supply of affordable housing has not kept pace. These targeted federal investments will not only help more families find affordable housing, but they will also make our community stronger for everyone by reducing crime, strengthening our economy, and enhancing our overall quality of life.  I’ll keep working in Congress to support development in our region and to help more families find a good home.”

Her office also added that “Through the CDBG program grant recipients use funds to construct quality housing, improve public infrastructure, and expand economic opportunities for working families. ESG grants are used to help families find permanent housing after they experience a housing crisis or homelessness and  HOME grants fund housing costs for low-income families.  Under the HOPWA program, grants fund projects that benefit low-income individuals living with HIV/AIDS.  According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are over 10,000 individuals living with HIV or AIDS in the Orlando metropolitan area.”
