Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA) receives a renewal award from HUD


TOLEDO, January 29, 2020: Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA) has received federal funding from U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to help residents of public housing and voucher-assisted housing increase their earned income and reduce their dependency on public assistance and rental subsidies.


Funded through HUD’s Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS), this $263,400 grant will enable LMHA to continue their collaboration with social service agencies, community colleges, businesses and other local partners with the goal of helping participants further their education and gain marketable skills. The funds cover one FSS Specialist for the public housing side and three FSS Specialists to assist those in the Housing Choice Voucher (HVC) program.


Demetria Simpson, LMHA President and CEO, commented, “This renewal grant will allow us to maintain our current staff who work with the Family Self-Sufficiency Program. The grant is very competitive and is one of the few self-sufficiency grants that work with our HCV clients. We are thrilled that we can continue this program and help families gain their independence.”
