Norfolk, VA – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority (NRHA) and the City of Norfolk have been selected as a finalist for the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative (CNI) Grant.  HUD received 32 grant applications and selected four applicants as finalists for individual grants of $30 million.

NRHA and the City of Norfolk applied for funding to support the transformation of the St. Paul’s Area in September 2018.  The St. Paul’s Area is more than 200 acres which contains three public housing communities and is subject to extensive flooding.  Norfolk’s transformation plan includes parallel efforts of both people and place.

“HUD’s decision validates the innovative work Norfolk is doing to create coastal community of the future.  We are strengthening our neighborhoods, we are safe.  Crime is at a 32-year low.  Our evolving waterfront city is among the most multi-modal and connected cities in the country and we are building on a growing and diverse economy,” said Norfolk Mayor Kenneth Cooper Alexander.  Check out the 64 page agenda below.
