LANSING, Mich. (AP) - More than $2.3 million will help public housing residents and others across Michigan connect with local services to improve their education and employment.

The aim of the grants announced Monday by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is to put residents on a path to self-sufficiency. The money seeks to help public housing residents as well as those who use Housing Choice vouchers.

The Michigan State Housing Development Authority is getting nearly $958,000; the Detroit Housing Commission is getting more than $263,000; the Saginaw Housing Commission is getting nearly $135,000; Ann Arbor is getting more than $102,000; and the Traverse City Housing Commission is getting more than $66,000.

A full list of recipients from Michigan and other states is posted online.
