PHOENIX (AP) - The city of Phoenix will receive more than $3 million in federal funding to make homes safer.

Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema said in a statement Wednesday that Phoenix has been awarded $3.4 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

City officials will use the money to address hazards in 190 housing units for low-income families with children.

The funding will also be used for safety assessments in 160 homes.

Councilwoman Kate Gallego says the grant will help with the removal of lead-based paint and other hazards.
