Farry Announces More than $1.4 Million in Affordable Housing Grants for District

HARRISBURG – Sen. Frank Farry (R-6) announced a series of affordable housing grants that will benefit the 6th Senatorial District.

Grants totaling more than $1.4 million were announced by the Pennsylvania Housing Financing Agency, including:

  • $500,000 for the Bucks County Housing Services Department to address housing insecurity post-Emergency Rental Assistance Program by supporting vulnerable households to prevent homelessness and enhance placement into permanent housing.
  • $425,000 for the YWCA of Bucks County to provide housing and specialized services for human trafficking victims, aiming to expand capacity and reduce barriers to housing.
  • $325,000 for the Bucks County Opportunity Council to provide housing, treatment and support services for incarcerated individuals with mental health or substance use disorders, and for probation and parole-supervised households experiencing housing instability.
  • $175,000 for the Habitat for Humanity Bucks County to partner with low-income homeowners for home repairs and modifications to enhance safety and accessibility, preventing decline in home value and neighborhood quality.

“Today’s announcement of more than $1.4 million in affordable housing grants marks a significant investment in our community,” Farry said. “These funds will enhance housing security, ensuring residents have access to safe and stable housing. I am grateful for the Pennsylvania Housing Financing Agency’s commitment to addressing these needs through the Housing Affordability and Rehabilitation Enhancement Fund, which underscores our ongoing efforts to strengthen neighborhoods and improve the quality of life for Pennsylvanians.”

The grants were awarded through the Pennsylvania Housing Affordability and Rehabilitation Enhancement Fund, which was established in 2010 to assist with the creation, rehabilitation and support of affordable housing throughout Pennsylvania. Funding for the grants is provided by the impact fee charged on natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale region and the state’s existing Realty Transfer Tax.
