Williams and Carter Announce $61 Million for Fort Hood
KILLEEN, TEXAS – U.S. Congressmen Roger Williams (TX-25) and John Carter (TX-31), who represent Fort Hood, announced that Fort Hood received $61 million in funding for five barracks renovations.
“After a combined effort with the Fort Hood community, I am pleased to announce that ‘The Great Place’ has been awarded $61 million for the renovation of five barracks,” said Rep. Williams. “Including this funding, I have worked to secure nearly $200 million towards improving living conditions for our soldiers this year. While there is still much to do, this action demonstrates that Congress is committed to providing for our men and women in uniform. I am proud of our work so far, and I will continue to fight on their behalf to secure additional funds for Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20) and beyond.”
“Thousands of soldiers call the barracks at Ft. Hood home, and it’s imperative that these men and women have comfortable and safe living quarters. As a representative of Ft. Hood, I’ve toured the barracks many times, and I have seen the dreadful conditions of some of these facilities,” Rep. Carter said. “So far we’ve been able to fund 24 barrack renovation projects at $296 million total and I look forward to continuing this mission with this new funding. These renovations will not only improve quality of life, but they also help boost morale and readiness among our Soldiers.”
