HUD awards second round of CARES Act funding for public housing authorities


TAYLORVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded a second round of CARES Act funding for local public housing authorities in Illinois’ 13th congressional district.

The district will receive the amount of $1,128,834. The funding comes through the CARES Act which Congressman Rodney Davis voted for and President Trump signed into law in March.
