SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Building upon the successes achieved and the lessons learned from the HOPE VI program, the Choice Neighborhoods Program employs a comprehensive approach to community development centered on housing transformation. The program aims to transform neighborhoods of poverty into viable mixed-income neighborhoods with access to economic opportunities by revitalizing severely distressed public and assisted housing and investing and leveraging investments in wellfunctioning services, effective schools and education programs, public assets, public transportation, and improved access to jobs. Choice Neighborhoods grants primarily funds the transformation of public and/or HUDassisted housing developments through preservation, rehabilitation, and management improvements as well as demolition and new construction. In addition, these funds can be used on a limited basis (and combined with other funding) for improvements to the surrounding community, public services, facilities, assets and supportive services. Choice Neighborhoods grant funds are intended to catalyze other investments that will be directed toward necessary community improvements. For FY2012, HUD awarded two types of grants for the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative: Planning Grants and Implementation Grants. (1) Planning Grants enable those communities that are not yet able to fully undertake a successful neighborhood transformation to build the capacity to do so, with the Federal government supporting their endeavors and incentivizing local support. The Planning Grants enable more communities to create a rigorously developed plan and build support necessary for neighborhood transformation to be successful. (2) Implementation Grants provide a significant amount of Federal support to those communities that have undergone a comprehensive local planning process and are now moving forward with their ‘‘Transformation Plan’’ to redevelop the neighborhood.
