COCOA, FL – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Awards $250,000 to address emergency, safety and security needs. This award is part of the $6 Million dollars of funding awarded to 29 public housing agencies nationwide – the Housing Authority of the City of Cocoa (HACC) received the only award in Florida.
