A North Federal residential housing unit in Mason City

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development this week awarded $7,826,510 to public housing authorities in Iowa. In total, HUD awarded more than $2.7 billion in funding to nearly 2,900 public housing authorities (PHAs) in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to make capital investments in their public housing units.

The grants announced today are provided through HUD’s Capital Fund Program, which offers annual funding to all public housing authorities to build, renovate, and/or modernize the public housing in their communities. Housing authorities can use the funding to complete large-scale improvements such
as replacing roofs or making energy-efficient upgrades to heating system and installing water conservation measures.

For more than 80 years, the federal government has been investing billions of dollars in developing and maintaining public housing, including providing critical support through the Capital Fund grants announced.

    If you’re a Democrat, you have to be thinking about a Harris/Cheney ticket in 2024 because the * administration is a complete disaster. And not just on policy. Obama‘s administration was a policy disaster. The Zombie Administration is a disaster in both form and substance.

    Biden also undid the Talon Act. This important action, taken by President Trump, took sex offenders who were here illegally and removed them from the population by returning them home. Under Biden they now get to stay indefinitely even though they’ve harmed innocent women.

        Operation Talon was planned in the final weeks of the Trump administration.
        It’s unclear if this program was ever implemented. As of this writing, it doesn’t appear that this program was responsible for any arrests or deportations.
        ICE either “canceled” or “temporarily suspended” this program in early February as it awaited guidance from the Biden administration.
        The decision to “cancel” or “suspend” this program was made by ICE officials without input from the Biden administration.
        ICE still investigates sex crimes through its Homeland Security Investigations division.

    Whats the difference between public/private housing. Sure would be nice to see the beginning and end result of all that money being spent.
