Danville Community Development Agency will receive $32,390, based on existing formulas for funding.

These grants are funded by the Coronavirus Aid, Economic Recovery, and Security (CARES) Act, which Guthrie voted for last month. The CARES Act created a voucher program to help public housing agencies keep residents safe and offset additional coronavirus-related costs.

“We created this program in the CARES Act to help keep residents safe and healthy during this unprecedented time,” said Guthrie. “I am glad to see this grant funding going to many different cities in the Second District to protect public housing residents.”
