“This funding invests in our public housing authorities which provide critical services and housing for some of Nebraska’s low-income families and individuals; including the disabled and elderly.” said Regional Administrator Ulysses M. Clayborn. “Our housing authorities will use these resources to expand our voucher programs, and provide housing stability for residents in Nebraska with the highest need”.
HUD's Public Housing Capital Fund Program offers annual funding to all public housing authorities to build, renovate, and/or modernize the public housing in their communities. PHAs can use the funding to complete large-scale improvements such as replacing roofs or making energy-efficient upgrades to heating systems and installing water conservation measures.
