City of St. Louis Community Development Administration (CDA) Announces Funding to Create Affordable Housing Opportunities, Provide Social Services, and Improve Infrastructure

Today, the City of St. Louis Community Development Administration (CDA) announced its spending priorities for over $26 million in federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to support St. Louis social services, create affordable housing options, and improve infrastructure across St. Louis.

“These investments reflect the City of St. Louis’ commitment to economic justice,” said Mayor Tishaura O. Jones, “Safe, stable, affordable housing for families creates stronger communities, and the City is proud to work alongside our federal, state and local partners to drive a historic investment into housing as diverse as our city.”

A major infusion of funding for the St. Louis Housing Authority (SLHA) will bring 127 units of offline public housing back into service for city families. This $2 million investment will fund renovations including drywall repair, new flooring, new cabinets, new appliances, new furnishings, and plumbing or HVAC replacements. SLHA estimates renovations will cost between $10,000 and $20,000 per unit.

“Diverse housing options enhance neighborhoods across our city,” said St. Louis Housing Authority Executive Director Alana Green. “The SLHA appreciates Mayor Jones’ leadership in helping bring more than 100 units of housing online.”
