“The funding announced today will provide over $147 Million in much-needed Community Planning and Development funding to communities throughout the Garden State,” said Justin Scheid, HUD Newark Field Office Director. “Cities, counties, and communities across New Jersey will be able to use this vital funding to develop viable communities by creating and retaining jobs and providing housing, services, and supports to those who need it most.” 

The grants announced today are provided through the following HUD programs: 

• $3.4 billion — The Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) provides annual grants on a formula basis to states, cities, and counties 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. 

• $1.3 billion — The HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) provides funding to states and localities that communities use - often in partnership with local nonprofit groups  to fund a wide range of activities including building, buying, and/or rehabilitating affordable housing for rent or homeownership or providing direct rental assistance to low-income people. 

• $387 million — The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) grants provides rental housing assistance for persons living with HIV/AIDS and their families. 

• $290 million — Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) provides funds for homeless shelters, assists in the operation of local shelters and funds related social service and homeless prevention programs. 

• $25 Million—The Recovery Housing Program (RHP) allows states and the District of Columbia to provide stable, transitional housing for individuals in recovery from a substance use disorder. 

Combined, ESG, HOWPA, CDBG, HOME and RHP programs will provide critically needed funding to thousands of local programs in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and Northern Mariana Islands.
