Utica Housing Authority Gets $1 Million Federal Grant
The Utica Municipal Housing Authority has been awarded a $1 million grant from the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The grant was announced by Congresswoman Claudia Tenney.
The money will be used to help identify and eliminate lead-based paint hazards in public housing.
“Utica has experienced a record amount of lead poisoning cases over the years, resulting in adverse health effects, especially for children. This grant will provide much-needed funding to ensure lead-based paint is properly identified and eliminated, and the health of the people of Utica are made a priority,” said Tenney.
