WASHINGTON, DC – August 24, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Senator Bingaman today announced that two New Mexico communities will receive federal housing grants through the U.S. Housing and Urban Development.
The Community Area Resource Enterprise (CARE 66) in Gallup will receive $487,000 to support 60 transitional and low income housing units, and Zia Pueblo will receive $241, 640 to develop affordable housing.
“I toured CARE 66 this week and saw firsthand how valuable it is to the community. I’m glad the federal government is supporting CARE 66’s efforts,” Bingaman said.
“It’s also good news that Zia Pueblo will receive a major federal investment toward its effort to meet the pueblo’s affordable housing needs,” he added.
