Frost Says $12 Million Will Be Spent On Housing And Infrastructure In Central Florida


Florida is one of the states with the fastest population growth, but it’s still hard to make sure that everyone who moves there has a place to live. Representative Maxwell Frost (D-FL) recently said that the Biden Administration would give $12 million for cheap housing and infrastructure. He said that this would “make a world of difference for so many working people and families in the Orlando area.”

Rep. Frost said that the $12 million would be split between 15 construction projects in the Orlando area. Of this, $4.1 million would go toward building a multi-family apartment building in Eatonville, $1 million would go to building a multicultural senior center in Orange County, and $750,000 would go to the City of Orlando for its Community Violence Intervention Project.

The grant would also help with infrastructure projects like building bus bays for the LYNX Central Station Bus Terminal and making a thermal energy storage system for the Second Harvest Food Bank, among other things. It would also go to the Small House Project in Bithlo.

In his press release, Rep. Frost said he “came to Congress with a mission to deliver on affordable housing, transportation, and infrastructure issues, and to make our communities a better place where everyone can live and thrive, and I am now proud to say that our team is making these goals a reality.”

Also, he said with hope, “This $12 million will make a huge difference for a lot of working families and people in the Orlando area, but this is just the beginning.” To help make Central Florida a better place, my team is ready to find and bring home even more money.

In January of this year, Frost and his partner Representative Darren Soto (D-FL) celebrated the EPA’s award of a $5 million grant to the Orange County Public School System to help pay for the purchase of twenty electric school buses for the area.

Frost said, “This grant will help us deal with some of the worst causes of climate change and start a new era of clean energy in Orange County.” We need to take steps like these to fight the climate disaster, which is a clear and present danger to our community and all of humanity.
