Vouchers will be used to help assist individuals and families who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, affected by domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking, or recently homeless.

“We are always grateful for the continuous support received from HUD to aid our families and individuals. This grant provides a great opportunity for the Montgomery Housing Authority to meet a critical need in the city and assist with providing them a sense of safety and comfort from undesirable situations, “said Damon Duncan, President/CEO Montgomery Housing Authority.
