LHA Awarded $241,227 for 21 Homelessness Vouchers

The LHA is pleased to announce that the agency has been recently awarded 21 Mainstream Vouchers by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), an award of $241,227. These vouchers will be utilized to provide permanent housing to non-elderly persons with disabilities, and who are at risk of institutionalization or experiencing homelessness in the City of Lowell. The Mainstream Voucher program further assists disabled persons achieve stable, independent living by encouraging community collaboration between housing providers like the LHA and support service providers to connect voucher holders with essential services.

This is the second year in a row the agency has received federal award funding. We are appreciative that the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development has recognized our ability to work with local partners to deliver these critical services. We look forward to continuing to work with our community partners to provide our new residents with the services they require to achieve their highest level of self-sufficiency. Thank you to Congresswoman Trahan and her staff for their dedicated understanding and support of the vital link between housing and services.
