Lubbock Receives Hefty Housing Authority Grant

hud.gov

Lubbock will be receiving a sizable amount of grant money for housing.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced Friday that Texas will be awarded more than $72,552,000 to make large-scale improvements to public housing units.

The funds come through HUD’s Capital Fund Program, providing annual funding to all public housing authorities to build, repair, or modernize public housing in the communities, often for energy-efficient upgrades.

The Lubbock Housing Authority will be receiving more than $793,000 to make these upgrades. The Housing Authority of Paducah will receive nearly $69,000, Levelland’s Housing Authority will receive more than $70,000, and Post will receive almost $100,000.

“This funding will help housing authorities address long-standing capital improvements, but it only scratches the surface in addressing the deep backlog we’re seeing across the country,” said Shaun Donovan, HUD secretary. “With the passage of HUD’s 2012 budget, Congress gave HUD the go-ahead for a new, comprehensive and critical demonstration tool that we believe will help preserve and enhance America’s affordable housing, including public housing.”
