WASHINGTON | The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded Indiana nearly $1.4 million in grants to help public and assisted housing residents connect with local services to obtain education and training to find jobs.

The funding allows the grantees to retain or hire 1,500 service coordinators to work directly with HUD-assisted families to connect them to the supportive services that meet their individual needs to become gainfully employed.

To that end, the Hammond Housing Authority has received $29,709 and the Gary Housing Authority has received $50,900.
