NYC RECEIVING $20 MILLION IN STIMULUS FUNDS

City Will Use Funds to Assist Homebuyers, Purchase and Renovate Foreclosed Units and Develop Vacant Sites

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded more than $20 million in Recovery Act funding to the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development under HUD's Neighborhood Stabilization Program 2.

The grants were awarded competitively to applicants who developed the most innovative ideas to address the impact of the foreclosure crisis on local communities while demonstrating they have the capacity to be responsible stewards of taxpayer dollars. The City will use the funds to buy, renovate and resell foreclosed properties in the most-affected neighborhoods to low- and moderate-income families.


In addition to the award to HPD, two other New York City housing agencies received NSP funding in Round 2: Habitat for Humanity New York was awarded $10.5 million and Community Builders received an award of $5.5 million.
