Rep. Engel Announces HUD Housing Vouchers for Cottage Gardens Residents

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Eliot Engel announced that the Municipal Housing Authority for the City of Yonkers will receive 35 housing vouchers from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to help relocate families living in the Cottage Place Gardens.

On Monday, Congressman Engel attended a groundbreaking for the Warburton Apartments, which is part of the second phase of a new development that will soon replace the aging Cottage Place Gardens Complex.

“The Warburton Apartments are certainly a welcome addition to the community, but we also need to ensure those currently living in Cottage Place Gardens have access to safe, affordable housing. These federal funds will help them secure adequate housing.

“I am also pleased that local, state and federal resources will be used to fix and repair our existing public housing facilities. The Warburton Apartments will enable more working families to secure a home, as well asimprove our neighborhoods and the quality of life for the people who live there.”
