The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced $177 million in grants to New Jersey for Community Planning and Development activities, ranging from the development of affordable housing to expanding economic opportunities for people with low and moderate incomes.
These grants are part of $6.3 billion to U.S. states, local entities of government, and U.S. territories through HUD’s Fiscal Year 2022 CPD Formula Grant Program. View a complete list of all the communities that received funding.
“HUD’s CPD programs support local governments who depend on this federal funding to address economic development needs, lack of affordable housing, and homelessness,” said Alicka Ampry-Samuel, HUD Regional Administrator for New York and New Jersey. “These programs also enhance communities, aid local businesses, and provide funding for infrastructure maintenance like water and sewer systems. Most importantly, it is a vital resource for low and moderate-income residents who just need a hand up to support their families and improve their quality of life.”
