SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This program provides grants to public housing authorities (PHAs) to: (1) Improve the living environment for public housing residents of severely distressed public housing projects through the demolition, rehabilitation, reconfiguration, or replacement of obsolete public housing projects; (2) revitalize sites on which such public housing projects are located and contribute to the improvement of the surrounding neighborhood; (3) provide housing that will avoid or decrease the concentration of very low-income families; and (4) build sustainable communities.

The FY 2009 awards announced in this Notice were selected for funding in a competition, the results of which were announced on May 26, 2010. The grantees were posted at that time to the HUD Web site at: http://www.hud.gov/​offices/​pih/​programs/​ph/​hope6/​grants/​revitalization/​09/​2009revawards.cfm. Applications were scored and selected for funding based on the selection criteria in the FY 2009 HOPE VI Revitalization NOFA.

The amount appropriated in FY 2009 to fund HOPE VI was $120,000,000. Of this amount, $4,000,000 was used for HOPE VI Main Street grant awards and $2,400,000 of this amount was set-aside to fund technical assistance and contract expertise. The remaining $113,600,000 was used to fund the FY 2009 HOPE VI Revitalization grants.
