Feds award state $35M to modernize public housingMarch 2, 2021
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — A federal agency has awarded Indiana housing authorities $35 million for large-scale projects to modernize public housing around the state.
The funding announced Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will go to 40 of Indiana's public housing authorities for projects such as replacing roofs, upgrading heating systems and other improvements.
The city of Gary's housing authority will receive the largest share of Indiana's funding, about $6.6 million. Housing authorities in East Chicago, New Albany, South Bend and Terre Haute will each receive at least $2 million for housing improvements.
Indiana's funding is a portion of $2.7 billion in HUD funding announced for nearly 2,900 public housing authorities in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The federal agency said it released a report in 2011 by a third-party independent study which estimated that the nation's then-1.1 million public housing units were in need of capital improvements estimated at $25.6 billion.
