HUD Announces More Than $3B in Grants to Improve Public Housing

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provided $3.17 billion in Public Housing Repair funding to 2,756 public housing authorities (PHAs) in all 50 states, including the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands to make capital investments in their public housing stock. PHAs can use these funds to improve the development, financing, modernization, and management of public housing developments.

“At HUD, our mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality homes for all,” said HUD Acting Secretary Adrianne Todman. “Today’s grant funding is a necessary investment that will not only ensure that the homes offered in public housing fit the needs of its residents, but it will also strengthen neighborhoods for generations to come.”

For over 80 years, the federal government has invested billions of dollars in the development and maintenance of public housing, including essential support through the Capital Fund grants.

The funds announced today are part of HUD’s Capital Fund Program, which provides annual financing to all public housing authorities for the construction, renovation, and/or modernization of public housing in their communities. Housing authorities can utilize the funds to make large-scale improvements such as roof replacements, energy-efficient heating system modifications, and water conservation measures.
