Thomaston Housing Authority awarded $343,352.00 for capital improvements
ATLANTA – U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan last Thursday awarded public housing authorities in Georgia $62,681,434 that will be used to make major large-scale improvements to their public housing units. The City of Thomaston Housing Authority has been awarded $343,352.
The grants are provided through HUD’s Capital Fund Program, which provides funding annually to all public housing authorities to build, repair, renovate and/or modernize the public housing in their communities. The authorities use the funding to do large-scale improvements to the housing such as new roofs or to make energy-efficient upgrades to replace old plumbing and electrical systems.
“This funding is critical for housing authorities to maintain and improve public housing conditions for their residents,” said Donovan. “However, with a significant repair backlog, I am encouraged by new, innovative long-term solutions HUD is exploring that can be combined with this funding to not only protect and preserve this housing for the next generation, but to also build the quality infrastructure necessary for families to thrive.”
“Housing authorities in Georgia count on this funding to maintain and improve their public housing for many families, especially the most vulnerable – our seniors,” said HUD SE Regional Administrator Ed Jennings, Jr. “HUD is currently taking bold steps to preserve this affordable housing.”
