Saratoga Springs Housing Authority Awarded $760k

ALBANY — Congressman Paul Tonko announced this week that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will award major grants to eight public housing authorities in the Capital Region totaling $9,763,637. The funding will allow e local agencies to make needed investments to repair and improve their properties. 

The grants to public housing authorities in the Capital Region include $764,749 awarded to Saratoga Springs Housing Authority.

“Our Capital Region communities are stronger and more resilient when people here know they can access secure, affordable housing that offers a safe place to live, work and raise a family,” Congressman Tonko said. 

“Maintaining and improving these local public housing resources helps ensure that our neighbors can get the help they need and deserve while also contributing to our economy,” Congressman Tonko said, in
a statement. 

HUD's mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. This funding to the Capital Region is part of more than $2.7 billion awarded to public housing authorities across the nation provided through HUD's Capital Fund Program. 

The Capital Fund Program offers annual funding to around 2,900 public housing authorities to build, repair and renovate the public housing in their communities. Housing authorities use the funding to complete large-scale improvements such as replacing roofs or making energy-efficient upgrades to replace old plumbing and electrical systems.
