“A thriving community begins with a safe and secure place to call home,” said Durbin. “Public housing authorities are the instruments of change that help stabilize neighborhoods that have weathered storms of neglect, providing residents with the resources they need to survive.”

“Access to safe and dependable public housing is critically important for families all across Illinois,” Duckworth said. “Along with Senator Durbin, I’m proud to advocate for federal funding that helps ensure local housing authorities have the resources they need to support and update the facilities in their communities and support residents in need.”
