BATH, Maine (AP) — Housing authorities around the state of Maine are receiving more than $1 million in federal money to preserve affordable housing and services for people with disabilities.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins says the money will also help low-income residents and families. She is the chair of the Housing Appropriations Subcommittee.

The largest grant is an award of nearly $300,000 that is slated to go to the Portland Housing Authority. Other grants are scheduled to go to housing authorities in Lewiston, Westbrook, Bath and Augusta. The Maine State Housing Authority is slated to get more than $160,000.
