HUD has awarded $10.4 million to PHAs for capital improvements in public housing developments that will enhance safety and security for residents. These funds are being awarded through HUD’s Capital Fund Emergency Safety and Security Program, and they support the Biden-Harris Administration’s Comprehensive Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gun Crime and Ensure Public Safety.
