Greendale Gets $44K For Public Housing

Posted On February 13, 2012

(Greendale, Ind.) – The City of Greendale is getting federal dollars to help improve its public housing.

 

On Friday, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded $21.5 million to Indiana to be used in communities across the state.

 

Greendale will get $44,265 of Indiana’s share to build, repair, renovate, or modernize its public housing.

 

 “This funding will help housing authorities address long-standing capital improvements, but it only scratches the surface in addressing the deep backlog we’re seeing across the country,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan. “Today, we are closer to helping housing authorities and our private sector partners undertake their capital needs over the long haul. With the passage of HUD’s 2012 budget, Congress gave HUD the go-ahead for a new, comprehensive and critical demonstration tool that we believe will help preserve and enhance America’s affordable housing, including public housing.”
