PITTSBURG, KS – The City of Pittsburg Public Housing Authority (PHA) is one of 62 agencies chosen by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to receive housing vouchers to provide supportive services to those facing homelessness in rural communities.
The Pittsburg Housing Authority was awarded five stability vouchers to assist individuals and families who are homeless, at-risk of homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, or were recently homeless. These vouchers are in addition to 15 Emergency Housing Vouchers issued to the PHA in July 2021.
“The newly-awarded Stability Vouchers are significant to the Pittsburg community as they give the Pittsburg Public Housing Authority additional tools we need to help five individuals or families obtain permanent housing,” says City of Pittsburg Housing Choice Voucher Manager Megan Keener. “With the combination of the programs and the partnerships the Pittsburg Public Housing Authority has established, we are coordinating an approach to help address unsheltered homelessness in our community.”
