Looking for Funding for an Economic Development Project?

HUD provides federal resources to fund a diverse range of economic development activities including job retention and creation projects, public facilities and infrastructure, and affordable housing. The resulting projects must benefit income eligible persons or communities. HUD does not provide assistance directly to individuals and businesses; rather, HUD provides funding for economic development activities to states, local governments, and nonprofits. If you are interested in partnering with a CPD grantee on an economic development project, contact a local grantee in your area.
