Lansing — Public housing authorities in Michigan are getting $31 million to make capital improvements to their properties.

The grants announced Friday by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development are provided through the agency’s Capital Fund Program, which offers annual funding to about 3,100 public housing authorities across the country for improvements.

A list of Michigan projects is posted online.

Housing authorities can use the funding to complete large-scale improvements such as replacing roofs or making upgrades to plumbing and electrical systems.
