WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today announced an additional $540,000 in funding to support nine public housing agencies across southwest Michigan in their response to the coronavirus crisis in public housing. The funding was made possible through the CARES Act Supplemental Public Housing Operating Funds. Upton voted for the CARES Act at the end of March.

“These funds for public housing commissions across our district will directly help better protect our families and communities,” Upton said. “I’m glad to see these funds going to those in the most need. Public housing commissions face unique challenges during this pandemic, and we will continue to support them as we work together to keep all Michiganders safe.”

The following public housing agencies in Michigan’s Sixth Congressional District will receive funding:

  • Benton Harbor Housing Commission, $174,128
  • Benton Township Housing Commission, $174,186
  • Saint Joseph Housing Commission, $21,039
  • Sturgis Housing Commission, $17,466
  • Niles Housing Commission, $55,785
  • South Haven Housing Commission, $25,364
