Bossier City, La. – U.S. Representative Mike Johnson (LA-04) today announced over $1.6 million in COVID-19 relief funds have been awarded to public housing authorities across Louisiana’s Fourth Congressional District. The grants, which are being dispersed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), were authorized under the CARES Act to ensure public housing operations are equipped to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Because many of our most vulnerable citizens live in public housing and close proximity to one another, it’s important that our public housing authorities have the resources they need to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” said Johnson. “These grants are headed to the communities that need it the most, and I thank President Trump and HUD Secretary Ben Carson for recognizing that need and helping to get the funds distributed quickly.”
