Washington, DC - Today, Congresswoman Stefanik announced the Housing Assistance Program of Essex County, Inc. will receive a $170,000 grant from NeighborWorks America. NeighborWorks America is a public, non-profit organization established by Congress in 1978 to support and enhance communities across the country.

"As many North Country residents face the economic challenges wrought by COVID-19, it's more important than ever to invest in our rural communities to keep housing costs low, sustain neighborhoods, and preserve jobs. This federal funding will do just that for our rural communities in Essex County and beyond," said Congresswoman Stefanik.
