Maloney Announces Over $7 Million in Grants to Hudson Valley for Housing and Economic Relief Programs Amid COVID-19 Pandemic 

Newburgh, NY - Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced the Hudson Valley has received over $7,007,385 in emergency coronavirus recovery grants, made possible by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The grant funds, which were awarded through Housing and Urban Development’s Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program and the Community Block Development Grant (CBDG) program will benefit several counties and cities in New York’s 18th Congressional District. 

“Hudson Valley’s care providers and local governments are on the frontlines of fighting this pandemic, and need strong federal resources to keep our communities healthy and safe,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. “I was proud to support the CARES Act - which provides critically needed on-the-ground support, and am happy to announce that communities here in the Hudson Valley have been awarded over $7 million in coronavirus-response grants. These flexible grants will bolster affordable housing and re-housing, support our local health departments, and expand opportunity to those who need it most.”

Dutchess County will receive $853,929, Orange County will receive $1,070,899, and Westchester County will receive $2,180,194 in Community Block Development Grant funds. In addition to the county-wide grant awards, Middletown will receive $292,206, Newburgh will receive $513,511, and Poughkeepsie will receive $490,225 in Community Block Development Grants. 

Orange County has also been awarded $533,307 through the Housing and Urban Development’s Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program. Westchester County will receive $1,073,114 from the same program. 

The funding was awarded through the recently passed supplemental emergency appropriations bill, as part of the third coronavirus emergency response package.

Housing and Urban Development’s Community Block Development Grant (CDBG) program awards grants to states, counties, and local governments to support affordable housing initiatives and expand economic opportunity for those who need it most. The grant funds can be used with local health departments to respond to the pandemic.

Housing and Urban Development’s Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program awards grants to communities that need assistance in rapid re-housing and homelessness prevention in the wake of an emergency. The funds can also be used to build emergency shelters for the homeless.
