Lonoke County receives HUD grant

The Lonoke County Housing Authority was awarded $133,012 Thursday to make major large-scale improvements to public housing assets, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced.

Statewide, $16.8 million were awarded.

The grants are part of HUD’s Capital Fund Program, which provides funds annually for large-scale projects such as new roofs or to make energy-efficient upgrades to replace old plumbing and electrical systems. The grants are awarded through a formula that considers number, type and age of units in a community. Eligible uses for this funding include development, financing and modernization of the public housing units as well as management improvements at the public housing authority.
