Hope VI Main Street Grants
The HOPE VI Main Street program’s purpose is “to provide grants to small communities to assist in the rejuvenation of a historic or traditional central business district or Main Street area by replacing unused commercial space in buildings with affordable housing.” Four million dollars in funding is available annually and grants may be up to $1 million. Applications are typically available in June and due in August annually. The minimum criteria for eligibility are the following: * Your city/town must have a population of less than 50,000. * Your city/town may not be served by a public housing agency that administers more than 100 units of public housing (if any). If you are interested, register with www.grants.gov immediately. You cannot apply for funds until the government processes you registration, which could take up to three weeks. Visit www.hud.gov/grants and download the registration brochure to get started. This is important even if you have registered in a previous year as registration must be renewed annually. Visit the HUD website weekly and www.mainstreet.org for any updates or Q&As that may be of help. Sign up at www.grants.gov to receive automatic e-mail notification of any corrections to the NOFA.
