GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Greensboro Housing Authority has received $492,000 in federal aid to help public housing residents achieve economic and housing independence.

The money will also help connect the elderly and people with disabilities with services that will allow them to maintain independent living, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development said Thursday in a news release.

The authority was one of four groups in North Carolina to receive a total of $1,173,000. In all, HUD awarded more than $35.7 million in grants to more than 30 states.

The money can be used to hire or retain “service coordinators” who work directly with residents to assess their needs and connect them with education, job training and placement programs, and/or computer and financial literacy services available in their community to promote self-sufficiency, HUD said.
