Manchin, Capito Announce $3 Million For West Virginia Public Housing

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $3 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)’s new Housing Trust Fund program to increase the supply of safe and clean public housing in West Virginia. 

“The new Housing Trust Fund will invest in states like West Virginia to make sure that all families have access to safe and clean housing. I have always believed that no child or family should have to go to sleep at night not feeling safe and secure in their own home. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will make sure the Housing Trust Fund continues to invest in West Virginia,” said Senator Manchin.

“West Virginia communities are a great place to call home because we look out for one another,” Senator Capito said. “When our neighbors are down, we lift them up, and these programs help ensure no one goes without a home for too long. Having a place to live is critical to getting back on the path toward success, and I will continue working to ensure our communities have the resources they need to provide opportunity for all West Virginians.”
