AGENCY: Office of the Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian

notifies the public of funding decisions made by the Department in a 
competition for funding under the Fiscal Year 2010 (FY2010) Notice of

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The HOPE VI Revitalization Program provides 
grants to public housing authorities (PHAs) to: (1) Improve the living 
environment for public housing residents of severely distressed public 
housing projects through the demolition, rehabilitation, 
reconfiguration, or replacement of obsolete public housing projects; 
(2) revitalize sites on which such public housing projects are located 
and contribute to the improvement of the surrounding neighborhood; (3) 
provide housing that will avoid or decrease the concentration of very 
low-income families; and (4) build sustainable communities.
    The FY2010 awards totaled $152,729,750, which included funds from 
both the FY2010 and FY2011 HOPE VI/Choice Neighborhood appropriation. 
The FY 2010 HOPE VI/Choice Neighborhood appropriation only allowed for 
the funding of six applications submitted in response to the FY2010 
NOFA. In addition to the FY2010 HOPE VI/Choice Neighborhoods 
appropriation, HUD used the FY2011 HOPE VI/Choice Neighborhoods 
appropriation to fund two additional FY2010 HOPE VI applicants. HUD 
used the FY2011 HOPE VI/Choice Neighborhood assistance due to the need 
to award the FY2011 appropriation to communities as soon as possible 
and the fact that there were many more high-quality HOPE VI applicants 
in FY2010 than HUD was able to fund, for which use of the FY2011 
appropriation provided a remedy. The results of HUD's HOPE VI 
selections were announced on May 23, 2011. At that time, and in 
addition to the applicant and Congressional notification processes, 
eight grantees and the amount of each award was posted to the HUD Web 
site at: http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/press/press_releases_media_advisories/2011/HUDNo.11-097. Applications were scored 
and selected for funding based on the selection criteria in the FY2010 
HOPE VI Revitalization NOFA.
    As a result of HUD's decision, HUD was able to fund eight public 
housing authorities (PHAs) from among 36 PHAs that applied for FY2010 
HOPE VI Revitalization funding. Using the FY2011 HOPE VI/Choice 
Neighborhoods appropriation in this way allowed HUD to fund two 
additional FY2010 HOPE VI Revitalization applicants and two additional 
FY2010 Choice Neighborhoods applicants that would not have otherwise 
been funded (FY2010 Choice Neighborhoods awards are addressed in a 
separate Federal Register notice). In accordance with Section 
102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform 
Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is 
publishing the names, addresses, and amounts of the eight awards made 
under the competition in Appendix A to this document.

Sandra B. Henriquez,
Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.
