Federal funding to improve rural housing has been announced.

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack has announced his selection of recipients of the funding in all 50 states and Puerto Rico Monday.

The grants are slated to make repairs and improve housing for rural residents classified as low and very-low income.

Four recipients have been awarded over $630,000 in Texas. Panhandle Community Services has received $160,000 to help residents of Potter County, the East Texas Council of Governments of Gregg County has been awarded $67,815, Economic Opportunity Advancement Corporation of McLennan County was awarded $201,600, and Fort Bend Community Revitalization Projects has been given $200,000.

Funds from these grants are to be used for plumbing improvements, providing access to the disabled, and to make homes more energy efficient.

Vilsack discussed the awards, saying “Providing safe housing to rural residents is a key to maintaining stable communities and creating jobs.”
