 Multifamily Asset Management Update

Multifamily communities can work with local governments to apply for The 2021 Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). The application deadline is February 15, 2022.
 
The Choice Neighborhoods Program leverages significant public and private dollars to support locally driven strategies that address struggling neighborhoods with severely distressed public and/or HUD-assisted housing through a comprehensive approach to neighborhood transformation. Local leaders, residents, and other stakeholders, such as public housing authorities, cities, schools, police, business owners, nonprofits, and private developers, come together to create and implement a plan that revitalizes distressed HUD housing and addresses the challenges in the surrounding neighborhood.
 
The program helps communities transform neighborhoods by redeveloping severely distressed public and/or HUD-assisted housing and catalyzing critical improvements in the neighborhood. To this end, Choice Neighborhoods is focused on three core goals: 
  1. Housing: Replace severely distressed public and assisted housing with high-quality mixed-income housing that is well-managed and responsive to the needs of the surrounding neighborhood; 
  2. People: Improve outcomes of households living in the target housing related to income and employment, health, and education; and 
  3. Neighborhood: Create the conditions necessary for public and private investment in distressed neighborhoods to offer the kinds of amenities and assets, including safety, good schools, and commercial activity, that are important to families' choices about their community. 
 

Eligible Applicants
  • The local government of jurisdiction must be the Lead Applicant or Co-Applicant.
  • For applications that target Indian Housing, the tribe meets this requirement.
  • The Lead Applicant must be a local government, Public Housing Agency (PHA), or a tribal entity.
  • A Co-Applicant can be a local government, PHA, tribal entity, or the owner of the target HUD-assisted housing (e.g. a nonprofit or for-profit developer).
