Gov. Haley Barbour announced Tuesday $100 million has been set aside for work-force housing in South Mississippi.

Barbour’s office said the money would be added to $150 million already approved for the program. The $250 million is part of the Long-Term Work-Force Housing program, which uses Community Development Block Grants offered through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Barbour’s housing plan allows businesses and nonprofit groups to apply for the funding to build work-force housing. The proposals must meet HUD’s guidelines for low-income homes.
