On Wednesday, Williams and other local leaders converged on the site to celebrate the grant and hear from U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield, who said the project was his top priority out of nine projects in the 1st Congressional District of North Carolina to receive the grant funding.
Butterfield presented Williams with the check for $2 million. The congressman called the ARISE complex a "small step" in the right direction toward repairing a national crisis of homelessness brought on by a lack of affordable housing.
