HUD ANNOUNCES NEARLY $9 MILLION TO ASSIST ELDERLY, DISABLED
Mobile Housing Board to receive $350,000

BIRMINGHAM - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded $8,796,564 in grants today to 32 public housing agencies and non-profit organizations across the country for supportive services that help elderly and disabled public housing residents.  Mobile Housing Board received $350,000 in funding under this announcement.  The announced funding will benefit elderly and disabled public housing residents by providing a full range of supportive services to significantly improve their quality of life and helping them to live independently.

"Thousands of elderly and disabled public housing residents rely on these grants to assist them in maintaining an independent lifestyle," said HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson. "In some cases, these grants are the bridge to help
our seniors and those with disabilities to live a life that allows them to fully participate in their communities and
enjoy a wide range of opportunities."

The funding is from HUD's Resident Opportunities and Self Sufficiency (ROSS) Elderly/Persons with Disabilities
Program
, which public housing authorities, resident associations and non-profit organizations compete for annually. The grants enable these entities to hire project coordinators to work with elderly residents and those with
disabilities to link them with supportive services available in their communities, such as transportation, health and wellness programs, and nutritious meal services, allowing these individuals or families to live independently longer.

HUD is the nation's housing agency committed to increasing homeownership, particularly among minorities; creating affordable housing opportunities for low-income Americans; and supporting the homeless, elderly, people with disabilities and people living with AIDS.  The Department also promotes economic and community development, and enforces the nation's fair housing laws.  More information about HUD and its programs is available on the Internet
and espanol.hud.gov.
