SCHUMER, GILLIBRAND ANNOUNCE REVISED FY ’21 FUNDING FOR PUBLIC HOUSING ACROSS NEW YORK STATE

Community Development Block Grant Program Provides Lifeline For Cash-Strapped Communities Struggling To Afford Essential Services

1.5% Revised Allocation Amounts to Hundreds of Thousands in Additional Funding for 50 Recipients Across New York 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer and U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today announced an increase in Community Development Block (CDBG) program funding originally announced by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on Thursday, February 25, 2021. After discovering a calculation error, HUD recently released the revised allocation totaling $333,107,801 for fifty recipients across New York State, each receiving a 1.5% increase in funding from the original calculation. 

“The Community Development Block Grant is a vital stream of investment that supports services to seniors and families, including affordable housing. Even as New York reopens, we must not forget to continue to invest in our future, and this funding recalculation does just that,” said Senator Schumer. “I worked hard to get this funding on the negotiating table in federal aid packages, and I will always fight tooth and nail to deliver this critical investment for our communities.”

“The Community Development Block Grant Program provides critical investments that support local economic development and jobs, community revitalization, and affordable housing across New York,” said Senator Gillibrand. “I am pleased to announce this increase in CDBG funding that will help support so many New Yorkers and communities during the pandemic.”

Communities across New York State use CDBG funding to address a wide range of needs. The funding enables local governments to support affordable housing initiatives and expand economic development. The CDBG program provides municipalities in New York with the critical funding needed to leverage outside investment in job creation projects and the reconstruction of public facilities, neighborhood facilities, senior centers, centers for the handicapped, recreation facilities, and streetlights. The funds continue to play a critical role in facilitating local economic development across New York State and in helping local governments succeed.
