WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA), the Senate’s leading champion for affordable housing, announced that six housing projects she supported in the State of Washington will receive federal funding.

“These projects will create new housing for the people in the State of Washington who need it the most, including families with children, low-income veterans, and people experiencing homelessness. 

"Affordable housing projects boost our economy, revitalize communities, and drive down inflation -- I will continue to advocate for investments and legislation that help us build more,” Sen. Cantwell said.
