HUD Provides Improvement Money To Local Housing Authorities

HUDU.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on Thursday awarded over $47 million to public housing authorities in Tennessee. The funding will allow agencies to make major large-scale improvements to their public housing units.
The grants are provided through HUD’s Capital Fund Program, which offers annual funding to approximately 3,100 public housing authorities to build, repair, renovate and/or modernize the public housing in their communities.  These housing authorities use the funding to do large-scale improvements such as replacing roofs or making energy-efficient upgrades to replace old plumbing and electrical systems.
The Manchester Housing Authority will receive $80,050 and Tullahoma will get $299,432.
