WASHINGTON -

Four housing authorities in Oklahoma are sharing $15.3 million awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

HUD announced Friday, the Housing Authorities of Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Muskogee and Osage County are being given the money to needed capital improvements to their properties.

  • Housing Authority of the City of Tulsa - $3,339,474 
  • Housing Authority of the City of Oklahoma City - $3,689,891 
  • Housing Authority of Osage County - $305,461 
  • Housing Authority of the City of Muskogee - $471,007 

The federal agency says the four housing authorities are being given the money to fund "large-scale improvements" such as replacing roofs or making energy-efficient upgrades to replace old plumbing and electrical systems. 

"HUD has a responsibility to provide public housing residents with a quality and safe roof over their heads," said HUD Secretary Julian Castro. 

"This funding, in addition to assistance from the private sector, through HUD's Rental Assistance Demonstration Program, will help housing authorities address long-standing capital improvements and preserve and enhance America's affordable housing."
