Federal Funding Cuts Affect the Syracuse Housing Authority

The Syracuse Housing Authority is funded by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, a federal agency that administers the cash flow of operating subsidy funds to all public housing authorities in the United States. SHA is one of 3500 housing authorities all across the nation. Remember that the rents you pay do not cover anywhere near the full amount it costs to keep your buildings heated, clean, maintained and to do all to the paperwork HUD regulations requires.

Celebration of Fathers and Families
