From Fort Worth Housing Solutions' newsletter:
After months of public meetings and planning, Fort Worth Housing Solutions submitted a $35 million HUD Choice Neighborhood Grant application in early November. HUD’s review process is expected to take about six months. If we win the grant, it will jump-start the transformation of Cavile Place and surrounding neighborhood.
The city and Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority intend to team up to pursue federal funding that would replace antiquated housing and revitalize an East Side neighborhood.
The project would involve a six-year, $35-million Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
From the Boston Real Estate Times:
Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh joined the Madison Park Development Corporation (MPDC), the Boston Housing Authority (BHA), local elected officials and the Madison-Whittier Coalition to celebrate the grand opening of the Melnea Cass Apartments.
The $39 million project creates 76 units of new mixed-income housing at 40 Raynor Circle and 600 Melnea Cass Blvd, and is part of the BHA’s Whittier Choice Neighborhood grant program.
From HUD's press release:
Expanding on its commitment to help local communities redevelop severely distressed HUD assisted housing and revitalize neighborhoods, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today awarded more than $5 million to four communities.
