WASHINGTON – Central Florida Reps. Stephanie Murphy and Darren Soto today announced that organizations and government agencies that work to increase affordable housing in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties will receive nearly $8 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to expand the supply of affordable housing, reduce homelessness, and revitalize communities.

“This federal investment will help Central Florida, one of the fastest growing regions in the nation, support the many organizations that are working to improve access to affordable housing for our rising population,” said Murphy. “I look forward to seeing how their hard work will continue to help us improve quality of life for our community.”

“While we continue to address affordable housing solutions in Central Florida, the reality is more and more constituents are at-risk of becoming homeless,” stated Soto. “That’s why federal grants, such as HUD's Continuum of Care, are crucial for our region to support organizations that provide shelters, transitional and permanent housing programs. I’m proud to work with my Central Florida colleague Rep. Murphy, as well as local organizations, on different solutions to reduce homelessness in our region and help our vulnerable communities. Our priority this Congress is to increase access to affordable housing for Central Florida.”
