WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) today announced Kentucky communities received a total of $4,904,036 for housing programs in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The federal funding, distributed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Housing Choice Voucher Program, was made available by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Senator McConnell introduced the CARES Act, which became the largest economic rescue package in American history, and led it to enactment in about a week.

“Kentucky families need our support as they face the health and economic crisis caused by the coronavirus. I’ve heard from housing authorities regarding the urgency of this federal assistance, and I was pleased to work with them to help Kentuckians through this pandemic,” said Senator McConnell. “When we wrote the CARES Act in my office, we focused on sending relief directly to families in need. As a result, the bold rescue legislation is delivering assistance in every part of our Commonwealth. As Senate Majority Leader, I’ll keep working to put Kentucky’s priorities at the center of the national discussion, especially as we combat this virus.”

So far, Senator McConnell’s CARES Act has delivered more than $92.6 million for housing and economic development in Kentucky.
