HUD Sending $40 Million Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grant to Miami-Dade County

Last week, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced it was sending a $40 million Choice Neighborhoods Implementation (CNI) grant to Miami-Dade County to “redevelop Cutler Manor in the Goulds area.”

“I am pleased to see that Miami-Dade County is receiving this Choice Neighborhoods award,” said U.S. HUD Sec. Marcia Fudge. “Miami-Dade County has demonstrated its commitment to neighborhood revitalization, having already undergone a comprehensive local planning effort to redevelop the Cutler Manor and the surrounding Goulds neighborhood. This public investment, which represents the maximum amount for grants targeting smaller housing developments, will give local officials the resources they need to achieve their vision for Goulds.”

“If we want to operationalize equity, we must be bold and courageous, accept local assessments, and invest in those communities that have articulated their choices on how to center the needs of the people, their housing and their neighborhoods,” said U.S. HUD Assistant Deputy Secretary for Field Policy and Management Michele Perez.“This $40 million investment does just that.”

The funds are part of more than $410 million in CNI grants going to eight cities across the country.

“The Choice Neighborhoods Implementation Grants will help revitalize and transform the distressed public and/or assisted housing and neighborhoods across the country, while also providing residents with services focused on income, health, and education,” HUD noted. “The CNI Grants fund the creation of new mixed-income housing communities, improve economic development opportunities, and support wide-scale community revitalization efforts that focus on the three areas of ‘Housing, People, and Neighborhood.’ The new grantees will join a committed group of 44 other Choice Neighborhoods sites nationwide that have collectively invested more than $6.3 billion into historically disinvested communities.”
