Gville Housing Authority, others in area getting federal grants

Gainesville and four other cities in the immediate area will share in more than $80 million in federal housing grants for Georgia through the federal government’s FY 2024 Public Housing Capital Fund Formula Grant Awards.

Sens. Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA) and Jon Ossoff (D-GA) say the money is earmarked for 149 places across the state and will “provide affordable housing options for Georgians of all income levels.”

Locally, the Gainesville’s Housing Authority is getting $486,095; Jefferson’s $269,138; Dahlonega’s $97,623; Commerce’s $157,983; and Buford’s $138,697.
