Lucas Metropolitan Housing complex, in Ohio, has been awarded a grant of $450,00 from the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development. HUD awarded this grant as part of HUD’s Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Planning program. The grant will be used to support the development of a “comprehensive neighborhood transformational plan to revitalize the McClinton Nunn Public Housing Development in the Junction Neighborhood.”
One of the most critical aspects of life is having access to a clean, safe place to live. Housing is an issue we discuss a lot here at GrantNews especially relating to affordable housing for low-income individuals and families. Part of this housing discussion centers on ensuring that public housing is well-maintained and safe for all residents. This is why grants awarded to improve housing conditions can be crucial, especially during winter months.
The Housing Complex
The HUD’s Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Planning program focuses on improving the conditions of the residents of public housing. The goal of the program is to revitalize struggling neighborhoods that contain distressed public, and HUD-assisted housing. This is achieved by bringing together a coalition of stakeholders, using a comprehensive approach to neighborhood transformation. This coalition will include local leaders, residents, and stakeholders, such as public housing authorities, cities, schools, police, business owners, nonprofits, and private developers.
This grant will create a great benefit for the residents of this housing complex as well as for the surrounding communities.
HUD Midwest Regional Administrator Joseph P. Galvan, spoke on this grant award, saying:
This grant will revitalize public housing in the Toledo community, increase health and employment opportunities for families and ultimately strengthen neighborhoods through economic development.”
