HUD AWARDS $6 MILLION TO 29 PUBLIC HOUSING AGENCIES TO SUPPORT EMERGENCY, SAFETY AND SECURITY NEEDS

WASHINGTON – In an effort to address emergency, safety and security needs, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development today awarded $6 million to 29 public housing authorities to help fight crime and drug activities at their public housing properties.

HUD’s Capital Fund Emergency Safety and Security Program supports public housing authorities as they address safety and security threats that pose a risk to the health and safety of public housing residents due to violent crimes or property related crimes within the public housing community. These grants may be used to install, repair, or replace capital needs items including security systems/surveillance cameras, fencing, lighting systems, emergency alarm systems, window bars, deadbolt locks and doors.

“All Americans should feel secure when they’re at home,” said HUD Secretary Julián Castro. “These grants provide our local partners with new tools to enhance the strength and vitality of their neighborhoods. Now, more families will be able to walk to school, get to work and safely access opportunity.”

The following public housing authorities will receive grant awards [Read individual project descriptions]:
