NORWICH – The Norwich Housing Authority is slated for another round of federal funding to help families in need of a place to live.
Federal funds were announced last week that will benefit six housing authorities throughout the southern tier region, including $133,778 for the Norwich Housing Authority. The Norwich Housing Authority directs two facilities in the City of Norwich: Bordentown Circle on Borden Avenue; and Peacock Manor on Brown Street.
U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced the federal funding totaling more than $2.18 million for the southern tier. These funds were allocated through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Public Housing Capital Fund.
“There’s a waiting list for people who are looking for apartments. I know there’s a need for affordable housing in the area, so we're very glad to get these funds,” said Judy Wingate-Wade, the executive director of the Norwich Housing Authority. “We're really in need of any help we can get.”
