The Houston Housing Authority, in partnership with The City of Houston, has been awarded a Choice Neighborhood Planning grant of $450k. With this grant, HHA and the City of Houston will work with the Cuney Homes Resident Council and many other local stakeholders, schools, business owners, and nonprofits to create and implement a Transformation Plan for Cuney Homes and the Third Ward. Through Third Ward-Cuney Homes Choice Neighborhood Transformation Plan, residents can expect an outline for a comprehensive effort focused on:
- replacing distressed housing with well-managed, quality, mixed-income housing,
- providing residents with quality-of-life support related to areas such as health and employment, and
- reinvestment in distressed neighborhoods to bring in good schools, commercial activity, and other amenities important to Houstonians.
