Clovis Housing to receive $32,844

The Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded $397,255 in grant funding to New Mexico housing agencies, according to a press release from U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M.

Clovis Housing and Redevelopment will receive $32,844 of the money.

The grants will allow the various housing agencies to retain their Rental Certification/ Housing Choice Voucher Family Self Sufficiency program coordinator that help families attain economic self sufficiency and eventually home ownership, the release showed.

“It’s important to provide New Mexicans with access to affordable, quality housing and to provide them with the tools needed to reach economic independence and eventually home ownership,” Bingaman said. “This funding will help housing agencies throughout the state provide services to individuals who need them.”’

According to Clovis Housing authorities, the choice voucher program allows low-income families the opportunity to find housing in the community and have part of their rent subsidized on a monthly basis.
