Conklin announces funding to support affordable housing project in Centre County
HARRISBURG, June 16 – State College Borough in Centre County has been awarded $280,000 to acquire, renovate and sell a single property for a low-income family, state Rep. Scott Conklin announced.
Conklin, D-Centre, said the funding comes from the federal HOME Investment Partnerships Program to support affordable housing projects statewide with the goal of expanding and preserving housing for low- and very low-income Pennsylvanians. More than $10 million in HOME Program funds were provided to the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
“Nothing is more important than having a place to call home,” Conklin said. “This funding helps families and individuals here locally and across our state with reliable, safe housing, including those who have been adversely impacted financially due to the current pandemic.”
