HUD will host a webcast June 3 to discuss FY11 funding for its Choice Neighborhoods Initiative planning grants. In FY10, CNI’s first year of funding, Congress approved $65 million for the CNI program. So far, HUD has released $4 million of these funds through planning grants to 17 communities and has announced six finalists for an additional $61 million for implementation grants, which HUD says it will announce late this summer.
HUD Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing Sandra Henriquez and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Multifamily Housing Carol Galante will host the webcast. It will be held at 1pm Eastern on June 3, viewable online at http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/press/multimedia/videos.
