BHA Receives $300,000 Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant to Revitalize Whittier
The BHA is one of 17 entities across the nation selected to receive a Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. The funding provides the BHA the resources needed to craft comprehensive, community-driven plans to revitalize public housing and transform distressed neighborhoods.



HUDís Choice Neighborhoods Initiative promotes a comprehensive approach to transforming distressed areas of concentrated poverty into viable and sustainable mixed-income neighborhoods. Building on the successes of HUDís HOPE VI Program, Choice Neighborhoods links housing improvements with necessary services for the people who live there Ė including schools, public transit and employment opportunities.

The BHA is currently engaged in ongoing efforts with the Whittier Street community to determine a plan for their neighborhood. To learn more, please visit the project blog here.
