Manchin, Capito announce more than $8 million for housing, fighting homelessness

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced $8,601,585 to multiple entities fighting against homelessness in West Virginia. Funding is provided by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

“Investment in public housing infrastructure is critical to the health of our communities. Everyone, no matter their circumstances, deserves to have a roof over their head. Access to affordable housing helps individuals to get back on their feet and provides them with another opportunity to contribute to their communities. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee I am proud that West Virginia is receiving this funding, and I will continue to fight to ensure that everyone has a safe place to sleep,” said Senator Manchin.

“Far too many individuals in West Virginia are struggling with homelessness and access to affordable housing,” Senator Capito said. “These grants will help local groups on the front lines of this issue and help those in need. Investing in housing infrastructure provides for a safer and healthier West Virginia.”
