Congressman Marc Veasey

Representing the 33rd District of Texas

Housing

As your representative in Congress, I’m committed to helping families become homeowners, eradicating homelessness, and ensuring safe and affordable housing options in the 33rd District.  The soaring price of housing in the Metroplex has forced families to spend more of their income on housing costs.  These prices limit the ability of families to pay for other basic necessities like health care and groceries. I am working with local leaders in the community and national advocates to expand and strengthen affordable housing options.

Recently, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded over $500,000 in federal funding to the Fort Worth Housing Authority (FWHA), which serves constituents in Congressional District 33.  A grant of $250,000 will be used to improve the safety and security at Butler Place Public Housing Community and another $269,856 will go to the Housing Choice Voucher Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program that assists families with supportive services.   In this time of steep proposed budget cuts, I promise to continue fighting to ensure that the 33rd Congressional District receives critical federal funding for housing, education, health care, and jobs.

Earlier this month a severe storm pounded North Texas, leaving Allen resident David Dobrenic wishing he had a storm shelter in his house.

“Just a safety factor, you can’t put a price on a life,” said Dobrenic.

Last summer Dobrenic signed his family up for the North Central Texas Safe Room Rebate Program, which helps pay for storm shelters.

From the moment it launched, there’s been an overwhelming amount of interest.
