Award Description: Award is for Capital improvements and projects at ten (10) public housing apartment communities in Delaware owned and managed by the Delaware State Housing Authority, and funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Capital projects include: removing and replacing shingles at the McLane Gardens and Peach Circle apartment communities; re=paving parking lots at Clark's Corner, Mifflin Meadows, Liberty Court I and Liberty Court II apartment communities; HVAC replacement at the Hickory Tree apartment community, Bathroom renovations at the McLane Gardens Annex apartment community; Replacing smoke detectors at the Burton Village apartment community; Removal and replacement of playground equipment, and storm water management workat the Liberty Court I and Liberty Court II apartment communities; and the Holly Square apartment community will have several porch pads replaced. The expected outcome of these projects is to address deferred maintenance at some of the apartment communities that have not been completed due to the lack of funding. Projects were selected that would have a significant impact on the community, and would be capital improvements that would last in excess of 15 years. Since every public housing development owned and managed by DSHA is receiving improvements or renovations through the Capital Fund Grant, it benefits a larger number of residents throughout Delaware.
