The Grundy County Housing Authority has been named a High Performing Agency by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The Federal Government uses their Public Housing Assessment System to take a look at all the housing authorities they support throughout the country in order to make sure they’re operating successfully. They do this by grading four sub-indicators: Physical, Financial, Management and Capital Funds.
In their 100 point grading system, Grundy County scored a 92. This means the local housing authority will receive several rewards from the government.
That’s Brent Newman, the Chief Executive of the Grundy County Housing Authority. He said many people contributed to their success this year.
According to Newman, the Grundy County Housing Authority provides housing to 160 people in Grundy County, provides a food pantry that feeds around 200 people at Saratoga Towers and performs housing inspections for more than 2,600 families in the Chicagoland area.
