U.S. Senators Susan Collins, the Chairman of the Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee, and Sen. Angus King announced last week that nine housing programs across the State of Maine have been awarded a total of $449,554 through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program.
Among those awarded were the Old Town Housing Authority, which received $24,124.
“Maine’s housing authorities provide a vital service to seniors, individuals with disabilities, and low-income families,” said Collins and King in a joint statement. “By supporting public housing agencies, these grants will help connect Mainers with the resources they need to achieve economic independence.”
