HUD awards over $100 million to improve, preserve nation's public housing in Texas

FORT WORTH, Texas -

(Press Release) 

To help public housing authorities make needed capital improvements to their properties, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development today allocated $101,541,224 in annual funding to housing authorities in Texas. See all the local grants announced today.

The grants announced today 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 complete large-scale improvements such as replacing roofs or making energy-efficient upgrades to replace old plumbing and electrical systems.

To help provide residents with decent, safe and sanitary housing and respond to the growing demand for affordable rental housing, HUD uses the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD), a comprehensive strategy that complements the Capital Fund Program.  RAD offers a long-term solution to preserve and enhance the country's affordable housing stock, including leveraging public and private funding to make critically needed improvements.
