Wilkes-Barre, PA – U.S. Representative Matt Cartwright (PA-08) today announced that the Wilkes-Barre Housing Authority received $5,360 through the U.S. Housing and Urban Development’s Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation Program CARES Act Supplemental HAP Funding Allocation.

The Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation Program funding comes as a part of the CARES Act and is granted to Public Housing Authorities (PHA) to assist Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) properties in preventing, preparing for, and responding to coronavirus.

“Housing programs provide a lifeline to many families across Northeastern Pennsylvania. Now more than ever, as we ask folks to do their part to prevent the spread of COVID-19, everyone deserves a safe, stable place to call home,” said Rep. Cartwright, a member of the House Appropriations Committee. “I will continue to be an advocate for funding to support housing security for all Americans as we continue to navigate the coronavirus pandemic together.”
