The local service organization Woodside on the Move is slated to receive $191,730 in City funds, the bulk of which will go towards supporting tenants and affordable housing in the area.

Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer announced the funding today at PS 152, alongside Woodside on the Move and kids from the organization’s summer program. He said he secured the funding in this year’s City budget and that nearly $152,000 will be used to help tenants dealing with housing issues, as well as affordable housing preservation efforts throughout Woodside.

“Woodside on the Move is an indispensable resource for our Woodside community and I am so thankful for its tireless organizing and advocacy on behalf of local tenants and immigrants,” Van Bramer said in a statement.
