Manchin Announces $582K for Affordable Housing Expansion in Rupert

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $582,410 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Woodlands Development Group. The funding will construct and operate 14 rent-assisted units for low and very low-income seniors in the Rupert area.

“Every West Virginian deserves a roof over their head and a warm, safe place to sleep at night,” said Senator Manchin. “I’m pleased HUD is investing more than $582K to help ensure quality, affordable housing in Greenbrier County, especially for low-income seniors. I look forward to seeing the positive impacts of the funding and, as a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will continue advocating for resources to support a secure living environment for every West Virginian across the Mountain State."

This funding is made possible through HUD’s Supportive Housing for the Elderly program, which provides interest-free capital advances to private, nonprofit sponsors to finance the development of supportive housing for the elderly.
