U.S. Senator Jack Reed announced this week that Rhode Island will receive more than $25 million through several federal grant programs.

Reed’s office said he helped secure the funds through his position on the Banking Committee, which oversees the programs, which are run by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

“This is a flexible source of federal funding that will help create jobs and boost economic development in neighborhoods and communities throughout Rhode Island. These targeted investments will help get more people working again. They will enable cities and towns to increase affordable housing, upgrade public facilities, and partner with non-profits to address some of their greatest needs,” said Reed.

The grant programs include: Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) program, the Home Investment Partnership (HOME), the Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG), and the Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS (HOPWA) program.
