WHITE PLAINS, NY – Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY17/Westchester-Rockland) today announced a $883,373 grant to the City of White Plains from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s CDBG Program. 

“This funding will provide White Plains with vital investments, including housing rehabilitation, development of public facilities and infrastructure, and expanded economic opportunities,” said Congresswoman Lowey.  “I am thrilled this federal investment will directly benefit my constituents in White Plains.”

As the Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Committee, Lowey secured $3.365 billion for CDBG in Fiscal Year 2018, an increase of $305 million from the prior year.

White Plains Mayor Tom Roach said, “"CDBG funding has been an important source of community investment funding for the city, helping homeowners make critical home repairs and helping community organizations provide much-needed services. Thank you to Mrs. Lowey for working to ensure that this funding stream remains available to the City of White Plains."
