About Choice Neighborhoods
In June 2016 the City of Phoenix was awarded a $1.5 million Choice Neighborhoods Planning and Action Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Edison-Eastlake Community. View the Project Summary.
The Choice Neighborhoods Initiative (CNI) is a grant from HUD to transform distressed neighborhoods and public housing into mixed-income neighborhoods linking housing improvements with appropriate services, schools, public assets, transportation, and access to jobs. Choice Neighborhoods is focused on three core goals:
HOUSING - Replace distressed public housing with high-quality mixed-income housing that is well-managed and responsive to the needs of the surrounding neighborhood.
PEOPLE - Improve educational outcomes and intergenerational mobility for youth with services and supports delivered directly to youth and their families.
NEIGHBORHOOD - Create the conditions necessary for public and private reinvestment in distressed neighborhoods to offer the kinds of amenities and assets, including safety, good schools, and commercial activity, that are important to families’ choices about their community.
