LITTLE ROCK — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded $16.5 million to 105 Arkansas public housing authorities to make major large-scale improvements.

The grants announced Wednesday are provided through HUD's Capital Fund Program. The program provides annual funding to about 3,100 public housing authorities nationwide to build, repair, renovate and/or modernize public housing.

The work can include replacing roofs or updating plumbing and electrical systems to increase energy efficiency.

Nationally, $1.8 billion was awarded to public housing authorities in all 50 states and to the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
