INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded a total of more than $1.3 million to 16 local housing authorities in Indiana to help families living in public housing and those participating in a housing choice voucher program further their education, find good jobs, and attain self-sufficiency.

The Indianapolis Housing Authority is receiving nearly $282,000 in the grants announced this week, while housing authorities in Evansville, New Albany, Fort Wayne and Terre Haute will receive grants of $100,000 or more. Smaller grans are going to housing authorities in Vincennes, Kokomo, Hammond, Gary, South Bend, Michigan City, Bloomington, Elkhart, Marion, Columbus and Peru.
