Bucks County Housing Group receives $210,872 in fourth wave of relief funds


The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator Joe DeFelice announced $2.3 million in a fourth wave of CARES Act funding to 22 local public housing authorities in Pennsylvania, including $210,872 to the Bucks County Housing Group in Doylestown.

Provided through HUD’s Section 811 Mainstream Housing Choice Voucher Program, this wave of relief funds will provide affordable housing to non-elderly people living with disabilities. Nationally, nearly $77 million is being awarded to public housing authorities across the country. The Section 811 Mainstream Housing Choice Voucher Program helps to further the goals of the Americans with Disabilities Act by helping persons with disabilities live in the most integrated setting. It encourages partnerships with health and human service agencies with a demonstrated capacity to coordinate voluntary services that enable individuals to live independently in the community.
