Choice Neighborhoods - Implementation Grants

Federal Agency


Public and Indian Housing (PIH)


To support those communities that have undergone a comprehensive local planning process and are ready to implement their “Transformation Plan” to redevelop the neighborhood.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

The eligible applicant must demonstrate that the proposal targets an eligible housing project and is located in an eligible neighborhood. Eligible applicants include Public Housing Agencies (PHAs), local governments, and tribal entities. The owner of the target HUD-assisted housing (e.g., nonprofit or for-profit developer) can be a co-applicant.

Decarbonization Considerations

Consider integrating community solar, building-tied solar and storage for backup power, EV charging infrastructure, nature-based heat island mitigation strategies, and other sustainable solutions that benefit the broader community.

Equity Considerations

For community solutions, align the solutions with the priorities of the community. For housing-specific solutions, consider prioritizing the distributed energy resource solutions that have the largest reduction on occupants' energy burden.

Helpful Tips
