The Wilkes-Barre Hous­ing Au­thor­ity has re­ceived a $210,000 grant from the Depart­ment of Hous­ing and Ur­ban Devel­op­ment, ac­cord­ing to U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-17, Moosic.

The grant is part of HUD’s Res­i­dent Op­por­tu­ni­ties and Self-Service Co­or­di­na­tors pro­gram, which helps pub­lic hous­ing au­thor­i­ties, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease from Cartwright’s of­fice.

The fund­ing will as­sist the hous­ing au­thor­ity’s ef­forts to “work di­rectly with res­i­dents to as­sess their needs and con­nect them with ed­u­ca­tion, job train­ing and place­ment pro­grams, and/or com­puter and fi­nan­cial lit­er­acy ser­vices avail­able in their com­mu­nity to pro­mote self-suf­fi­ciency,” the news re­lease states.
