Texas Receives More than $5 Million in Housing and Urban Development Grants

hud.gov

Texas has received more than $5 million in grants to help public and assisted housing residents connect with local services, specifically to get education and training to find jobs.

The grants have been awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

HUD says that the funding will allow the local grantees to retain or hire 98 service coordinators to work directly with HUD-assisted families.

The City of Lubbock Housing Authority will receive nearly $20,000, and the Abilene Housing Authority will receive more than $48,000. The City of Amarillo will also get more than $36,000.

“This funding ultimately links individuals to childcare, computer access, job training, and other basic skills individuals need to compete for jobs that pay a living wage,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan. “To continue to grow America’s economy, we must see to it that every American has the skills and resources they need to become gainfully employed.”
