Choice Neighborhoods Initiative (Department of Housing and Urban Development)

In case you haven’t already seen this funding announcement -- the Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced the availability of $110 million in grants under the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative to transform public and assisted housing and to revitalize communities.

Eligible applicants are public housing authorities, local governments, nonprofits, tribal entities and for-profit developers that apply jointly with a public entity. Applications must present a plan to revitalize a severely distressed public and/or HUD-assisted multifamily housing project located in a distressed neighborhood into a viable, mixed-income community.

Additional information is available on HUD’s website. For a link to the full funding notice, go to Grants.gov and enter FR-5600-N-19 in the Search by Funding Opportunity Number field. Applications are due April 10, 2012.
