Los Angeles was one of eight cities announced Monday as recipients of $450,000 federal grants to support a comprehensive neighborhood revitalization plan.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development funds were given to the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, which will use the money to develop a “transformational plan” by and for residents of Chinatown and for the benefit of residents of the William Mead Homes housing development.
“Housing, people and neighborhood are the three focal points of HUD’s Choice Neighborhoods program,” said HUD Deputy Regional Administrator Wayne Sauseda. “With this grant, HACLA will initiate a planning process guided by a Community Advisory Council led by the president of the Meads Homes Resident Advisory Council.”
