Last Friday, HUD announced $7 million in Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grants to 14 communities across the country. Each awardee will receive a $500,000 grant to create a comprehensive neighborhood revitalization plan to redevelop severely distressed public housing, improve outcomes for residents, and bring new amenities to high-poverty neighborhoods.

Five CLPHA members and their local partners received planning grants: 

  • Elm City Communities: Union Square 
  • Orlando Housing Authority: West Lakes/Lake Mann  
  • Housing Authority of Kansas City: Westside 
  • Stark Metropolitan Housing Authority: Southeast Canton
