The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on Monday announced $5.5 billion in funding to local programs throughout the country that provide affordable housing, community development and economic opportunity, and support to individuals and families experiencing homelessness. View a complete list of all the communities that received funding.

Locally, HUD awarded $535,288,536 to 50 communities across New York.

“These core programs provide our local partners the funding they need to provide homes and vital services to some of our neighbors in need,” Acting Secretary Matt Ammon said. 

“This funding comes at a critical time for our country when these bedrock programs have never been more important,” said James Arthur Jemison, principal deputy assistant secretary for community planning and development.

“Today, HUD is providing over $535 million in critical community planning and development grants to counties, cities, and towns across New York state,” said Stephen Murphy, HUD deputy regional administrator for New York and New Jersey. “Local governments, service providers and partners across the state will use this funding to increase affordable housing, provide shelter and services for homeless families, ensure rental assistance for people living with HIV/AIDS, and assist businesses to create and retain jobs through economic development.” 

The grants announced for New York today are provided through the following HUD programs:

•$328 million — The Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) provides annual grants on a formula basis to states, cities and counties to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons.

•$127.6 million — The HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) provides funding to states and localities that communities use – often in partnership with local nonprofit groups – to fund a wide range of activities, including building, buying and/or rehabilitating affordable housing for rent or homeownership or providing direct rental assistance to low-income people.

•$51 million — The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) grants provide rental housing assistance for persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families.

•$27.9 million — Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) provides funds for homeless shelters, assists in the operation of local shelters and funds related to social service and homeless prevention programs.
