PORTSMOUTH, OH –  Congresswoman María Elvira Salazar (R-FL) released the following statement after the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the Community Planning and Development Program Formula Allocations for Fiscal Year (FY) 2023:

As Miami becomes an increasingly popular place to live, I remain committed to ensuring families have affordable and viable housing options in our area. These grants are vital to local municipalities around our country and will help residents with their housing needs.”

The Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded Miami-Dade County over $18.5 million for projects to help FL-27 residents with their housing needs.

Programs include grants to develop our urban centers by expanding economic opportunities, assist those members of our community facing a housing crisis and/or homelessness, and expand the supply of affordable housing to residents in the area.

NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate.

The reality is, socialism is resentment against success masquerading as compassion for the poor. It is a system of oppression presented as the road to equality.” – Maria Elvira Salazar
