LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded more than $16 million to public housing authorities in Arkansas.

The funding was announced Thursday by the federal agency, and will allow agencies to make major, large-scale improvements to their public housing units. 

The grants are provided through a HUD program that offers annual funding to about 3,100 public housing authorities to build, repair, renovate and/or modernize the public housing in their communities. 

The housing authorities then use the funds to do large-scale improvements, such as replacing roofs or making energy-efficient upgrades to replace old plumbing and electrical systems.
