HUD Dollars To Vidalia and Lyons
Sunday, 01 March 2009
March 1--  Congressman John Barrow (GA-12) today announced that the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will be allocating $218,795 from the 2009 Capital Fund Program to the City of Vidalia, and $258,616 to the City of Lyons.  These funds will be directed toward programs that can begin in 120 days.

According to HUD, “Capital Fund awards will be used to provide funds to Public Housing Agencies eligible for Capital funding as authorized under Section 9 of the United State Housing Act of 1937, with the exception that funds cannot be used for operations or rental assistance. The funds will be used for capital and management activities, including modernization and development of public housing.”

“It’s great that local communities, like Vidalia and Lyons, are already getting their economic recovery funds,” said Barrow.  “Folks here have been hit hard by the recession, and this money couldn’t get here a minute too soon.  These funds will grow our local economy in a lasting way through infrastructure projects that will hold their value in the long run.  More importantly, they’ll be used to put folks to work.”

In total, communities in Georgia’s 12th District will receive close to $14.5 million in 2009 Recovery Act grants from HUD.
