Grant Funding Awarded to Lansing by HUD

Lansing is receiving the following grants from the Michigan/U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD): 


Community Development Block Grant of $2,006,536

A HOME Grant of $794,822

Emergency Solutions Grant of $167,605


These numbers represent about a 7% increase in CDBG and a 25% increase in HOME.

 

Grant Descriptions:

  • The Community Development Block (CDBG) Grants program provides annual grants to States and local units of government to develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and a suitable living environment, and by expanding economic opportunities, principally for low- and moderate-income persons.
  • The Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) program provides annual grants to State, local, and private entities to assist people in quickly regaining stability in permanent housing after experiencing a housing crisis and/or homelessness.  In addition to rapid re-housing and homelessness prevention, the ESG program also provides limited funding for street outreach as well as for improving the quality and number of emergency homeless shelters.
  • The HOME program helps to expand the supply of decent, affordable housing to low- and very low-income families by providing grants to States and local governments to fund housing programs that meet local needs and priorities.
