$10.7 Million for Region Public Housing Improvements; $800K for Saratoga Springs Housing Authority

ALBANY — Six Capital Region public housing authorities (PHAs) have been awarded a combined $10,762,770 in federal grant funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Congressman Paul Tonko announced. 

The funding will allow the local agencies to make needed investments to build, renovate, and modernize public housing in our Capital Region communities.

 “The major grant awards announced this week will pay significant dividends for our Capital Region by funding needed repairs, enhancing sustainability, and ensuring that each and every one of our neighbors has a safe place to live, work, and raise a family,” Tonko said in a statement. “I’m grateful to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for this important investment, and I’ll continue working to build strong, sustainable, and inclusive communities across our region.”

The grants announced for Capital Region public housing authorities includes $796,911 for Saratoga Springs Housing Authority.

The funding is part of $3.17 billion awarded to 2,756 public housing authorities across the nation through HUD’s Capital Fund Program – which offers annual funding to all public housing authorities to construct, repair, and modernize public housing developments in their communities.
