Gosar Applauds Grants for Arizona Housing Authorities

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) made the following statement after the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the grant recipients from the House Choice Voucher Program, that was included in the CARES Act. 

“I am pleased to see money I voted for in the CARES Act coming back to Rural Arizona, as our communities have been hit hard by the economic shutdown. While I want to see restrictions be lifted and people to be allowed to go about their daily lives, this money is necessary to help our local housing authorities cope with increased demand caused by the shutdown. I thank Secretary Carson for his hard work and listening to the needs of rural communities in Arizona,” said Gosar.

Mohave County Housing Authority: $96,721
