WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

The Eastern Iowa Regional Housing Authority is receiving $240,000 in grant money.  This grant will provide funding for programming to help public housing residents work towards economic and housing independence through empowerment activities and support services. 

"This money is crucial for many residents of Eastern Iowa," Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA) said.  "As we continue to rebuild our economy, it is critical Iowa's communities have the tools they need to help working families get back on their feet and provide necessary support services."
