CNI program funds are intended to transform distressed public and assisted housing into sustainable, mixed-income housing with connection to key assets and services and to support positive outcomes for families living in the development and in the neighborhood. HUD received 44 applications for implementation grants; the four grantees will receive a combined total of nearly $120 million in award from the FY13 competition funds.
