HUD Announces Grants for Main Street Development

Communities with a population of 50,000 or less are eligible for grants.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development recently opened the HOPE VI Main Street grant program for applications, making $2 million available for Main Street development in small cities. Towns with populations of 50,000 or less are welcome to apply for funding, allowing them to build affordable housing in their central business areas, preserve historic Main Street properties, and develop local business opportunities. The application period is open until October 12.

“HUD recognizes that cities are in need of revitalization across the country,” said Secretary Marcia Fudge. “We want to support city governments in their efforts to restore economically crucial business districts by providing housing in these areas.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for Secretary Fudge as she heads the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
  • For HUD officials as they review and choose recipients for the housing grants.
  • For leaders of the towns who receive the funding to invest it wisely and efficiently.
