Mass. gets grants to assist in public housing

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Federal housing officials say more than $50 million in federal grants will go toward improving public housing units in Massachusetts.

They say the grants are used for housing upgrades that can include new roofing, or the replacement of old plumbing and electrical systems.

The Boston Housing Authority will get more than $18 million under the program.

Housing authorities in several other areas will get more than a million dollars, including those in Cambridge, Brockton, Fall River, Lowell, New Bedford, Springfield and Worcester.

Barbara Fields, Housing and Urban Development's New England regional administrator, says the money will help improve housing for many families and especially seniors.
