Congressman Mike Turner released the following statement following U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) grant of $2,399,211 to Greater Dayton Premier Management (GDPM):

“Currently, almost 16,000 people benefit from GDPM’s work annually. HUD’s grant will go a long way in furthering GDPM’s beneficial impact. GDPM will use this funding to help reduce barriers between individuals and employment training services. I thank HUD for recognizing GDPM’s success and contribution to the Dayton community.”

In August, Congressman Turner brought Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), Chairman of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Subcommittee of the House Committee on Appropriations, to Dayton. The congressmen visited GDPM and other creative housing development initiatives in Dayton, sites Congressman Turner called “examples of what can be accomplished when resources from the federal level are allocated creatively.”
