HUD Sending $78.4 Million to Public Housing Authorities Across Florida

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development recently announced that it is sending $78,425,278 to public housing authorities (PHAs) across Florida.

The funds are part of $3.16 billion going to help almost 2,770 PHAs across the nation through HUD’s Capital Fund Program.

“As I have traveled the country, I’ve heard time and again from families and seniors in public housing that a decent home in a safe community shouldn’t be too much to ask for,” said HUD Sec. Marcia Fudge. “With this investment today, we are committing to work with our public housing authority partners to guarantee homes in public housing are worthy of the families and individuals who live there.”

The Capital Fund Program “offers annual funding to all public housing authorities to build, renovate, and/or modernize the public housing in their communities” and “housing authorities can use the funding to complete large-scale improvements such as replacing roofs or making energy-efficient upgrades to heating systems and installing water conservation measures.”

The following PHAs in Florida are getting funds.
