Housing Choice Grant Program

The Housing Choice Grant Program is a competitive grant that rewards municipalities that have produced a significant number of housing units in the last five years and that have adopted or established Best Practices that encourage housing production. This competitive grant program awards funds based on the project’s nexus with housing, transportation, infrastructure, economic development, and community development.

To apply, a community must have a current Housing Choice Community Designation. This grant program is part of the Community One Stop for Growth, a single application portal and collaborative review process of community and economic development grant programs.
