Demolition and Revitalization of Severely Distressed Public Housing

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Purpose of this program:

Revitalization Grants enable PHAs to improve the living environment for public housing residents of severely distressed public housing projects through the demolition, substantial rehabilitation, reconfiguration, and/or replacement of severely distressed units; revitalize the sites on which severely distressed public housing projects are located and contribute to the improvement of the surrounding neighborhood; lessen isolation and reduce the concentration of low-income families; build sustainable mixed-income communities; and provide well-coordinated, results-based community and supportive services that directly complement housing redevelopment and that help residents to achieve self-sufficiency, young people to obtain educational excellence, and the community to secure a desirable quality of life. HOPE VI Demolition Grants enable PHAs to fund the demolition of severely distressed public housing units, the relocation of affected residents, and the provision of supportive services to relocated residents. Any subsequent new construction or revitalization of any remaining units must be funded from other resources.
