From the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority's press release:

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded a $35 million dollar Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant to the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) and the City of Cleveland for its Buckeye/Woodhill Transformation Plan. CMHA together with the City of Cleveland, The Community Builders (TCB), City Architecture, Case Western Reserve University, Burten, Bell, Carr Development and the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, is leading a major transformation of Woodhill Homes and the surrounding Buckeye-Woodhill community.

"As part of my Neighborhood Transformation Initiative, our goal has been to transform and revitalize the Buckeye-Woodhill community in a way that prioritizes the needs, concerns and vision of its current residents," said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. "The Choice Neighborhood Implementation Grant ensures our city, partners and residents can continue the important work of making equitable neighborhood development a reality in Cleveland neighborhoods. This grant is a testament to the hard work and dedication of residents in the Buckeye-Woodhill community, working with the support of both CMHA and Councilmember Griffin. We appreciate their collaboration throughout this process and moving forward. I thank President Biden and Secretary Fudge for entrusting Cleveland with this important award."

Shaped by the vision and priorities of current residents, this Transformation Plan includes new housing, streets, public space, and programming for a thriving community. The Choice Neighborhood Implementation Grant awarded to CMHA and the City of Cleveland will serve as a catalyst to build out a comprehensive mixed income community valued as envisioned through three years of intensive community planning.
