JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi is among the states that will
share in $2.1 billion from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
The federal agency said it's providing the money because of the
"tremendous unmet housing, economic and infrastructure needs
following this year's natural disasters."
Mississippi will receive $6.2 million. Of that, at least
$667,000 must go toward affordable housing.
Twelve others states and Puerto Rico also will receive funding
provided through HUD's Community Development Block Grant Program.
