Padilla Announces $2.2 Million in Grants for Housing Counseling Programs in California
Resources to provide affordable housing guidance and support made possible through the American Rescue Plan
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Alex Padilla (D-Calif.) announced that six grants, totaling over $2.2 million, were awarded to California organizations through the NeighborWorks Housing Stability Counseling Program. These grant funds aim to help eligible nonprofits and agencies that provide direct counseling services to individuals and families facing housing instability, such as eviction, foreclosure, and homelessness.
The funding was made available through the American Rescue Plan of 2021, which Padilla voted to pass.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated an already acute affordable housing crisis for many Californians. I am grateful to see organizations working to provide valuable housing counseling services across California awarded with this federal support,” Senator Padilla said. “Thanks to the American Rescue Plan, this funding will help community organizations keep more people in their homes by providing planning and resources to connect Californians to affordable housing.”
