Kennedy announces $27 million for coronavirus housing relief


Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced $27,028,842 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide financial assistance to Louisianians having trouble meeting rental obligations and facing the risk of eviction.

“Many Louisianians are facing tough times through no fault of their own. Government shut down the economy, and people are struggling to afford housing. I’m grateful for HUD’s work to quickly disperse these funds as we walk the path of economic recovery,” said Kennedy.

This funding is authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act. These funds can be used toward rental obligations for up to six months.
