Rep. Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, announced a $1.1 million assistance to aid low-income Iowans to find employment on Wednesday.

According to a release, the funding will create partnerships to help low income families find employment to gain economic independence. More than $315,000 will be given to resident living in the 2nd Congressional District, with the Iowa City Housing Authority expecting to receive $121,721.

“Helping communities supply low-income families with the tools needed to find employment is a win-win situation,” Loebsack said in the release. “It is important that everyone is provided an opportunity to be able to support and care for their families.”

Some of the other areas that will receive funding include the city of Dubuque, the Southern Iowa Regional Housing Authority, and the Municipal Housing Agency of Fort Dodge.
