Jacksonville Housing Wins $124K Federal Grant for Carbon Monoxide Detectors
JACKSONVILLE (January 15, 2021) - Jacksonville Housing (JH) has been awarded a $123,760 grant by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to support the installation, repair, and/or replacement of carbon monoxide detectors.
A provision in the $900 billion coronavirus relief bill that Congress passed in December requires carbon monoxide detectors in public housing units across the country.
"This funding will enable our agency to make physical safety improvements to address the threat carbon monoxide poses to residents' safety and improve their quality of life," said JH interim CEO Dwayne Alexander.
Jacksonville Housing (JH) was created in 1994 to fill the need for a more effective community service oriented public housing agency. The Board of Directors consists of seven members who are appointed by the Mayor. These seven members have a strong record of success in private sector process and work hard to build a better future for the local Jacksonville community.
