$250,000 safety grant awarded to WCHA

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently announced that it has awarded Westmoreland County Housing Authority (WCHA) a $250,000 grant to enhance safety and security measures for its residents.

The grant was made as part of $13.7 million that HUD awarded to Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) throughout the country to make needed capital improvements in public housing developments.

“We are very excited to receive this grant as WCHA intends to upgrade and purchase state of the art security and surveillance equipment authority-wide to keep our elderly and families safe,” said Michael L. Washowich, Executive Director.

The funds are awarded through HUD’s Capital Fund Emergency Safety and Security Program, which supports public housing authorities as they address the safety of public housing residents. These grants may be used to install, repair, or replace capital equipment or systems that contribute to a safer living environment for residents, including security systems/surveillance cameras, fencing, lighting systems, emergency alarm systems, window bars, deadbolt locks, doors, and carbon monoxide detectors.
