HUD Awards $25 Million to Improve & Preserve Public Housing in Wisconsin

Posted on 2-25-2021

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, on Tuesday, awarded more than $2.7 billion in funding to nearly 2,900 public housing authorities (PHAs) in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to make capital investments in their public housing units. This includes $25 million to 90 PHAs throughout the state of Wisconsin.

The grants announced are provided through HUD’s Capital Fund Program, which offers annual funding to all public housing authorities to build, renovate, and/or modernize the public housing in their communities. Housing authorities can use the funding to complete large-scale improvements such as replacing roofs or making energy-efficient upgrades to heating system and installing water conservation measures.
