Posted online
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is providing more than $38 million to Missouri Public Housing Agencies through the department's Capital Fund Program, and that number includes nearly $2 million to southwest Missouri communities.

The Capital Fund provides grants annually to agencies for capital and management activities, including modernizing and developing public housing, according to a news release from U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill's office, which announced the grants.

More than 100 Missouri organizations will receive grants. The largest in southwest Missouri is Springfield, which will receive more than $1.1 million. Others in the area are Aurora, $80,580; Ava, $48,321; Branson, $41,509; Joplin, $394,807; Neosho, $101,470; and Republic, $60,031.

Public Housing Agencies are government agencies in each town that remodel or renovate buildings using government funds. Statewide, the largest amounts go to St. Louis, which will receive $15.5 million, Kansas City, which gets $3.5 million, and Poplar Bluff, which gets $1.2 million. Amounts are determined by a predetermined formula.[[In-content Ad]]
