FAIRBANKS — The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded $267,642 to the Alaska Housing Finance Corp. to help residents of HUD-assisted and public housing obtain education and skills training to assist them in the job market.

A news release from HUD says AHFC will be able to hire or retain four service coordinators — one for its public housing and three for its assisted-housing complexes. The coordinators will connect residents to the services that will best help them become employed.

The grant to AHFC was part of a national announcement of $15 million awarded through the Public Housing-Family Self-Sufficiency Program and $60 million through the Housing Choice Voucher Family Self-Sufficiency Program. Housing Choice Vouchers are commonly referred to as “Section 8 vouchers.”
