State Rep. Tina Davis announced the approval of over $1.1 million in funding for numerous Bucks County organizations for much-needed programs and services, according to a staff report from the Lower Bucks Times.
“Our state and national economy suffered greatly in the months and years since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and while there have been many positive signs of economic recovery,” said Davis, “many residents are still struggling.”
She particularly cited area residents facing rising housing costs.
“It’s important,” she therefore continued, “to fund the organizations responsible for addressing the housing needs for so many throughout our communities.”
Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency approved funding for five local Pennsylvania Housing Affordability and Rehabilitation Enhancement applicants:
- Bucks County Housing Services Department received $400,000 to continue to support housing solutions, including its Rapid Hotel Response payments
- YWCA of Bucks County received $350,000 to expand its capacity to serve victims of human trafficking
