Economic Development Initiative - Community Project Funding Grants

Welcome to the Economic Development Initiative/Community Project Funding landing page.  

Congress awards grants to communities under the Economic Development Initiative for the purpose of Community Project Funding/Congressionally-directed spending through the Appropriations process. EDI/CPF grants provide investment in a wide variety of projects such as housing, homelessness prevention, workforce training, public facilities, parks, resilience planning and other critical infrastructure and services. 

The Congressional Grants Division in HUD’s Office of Community Planning and Development is responsible for the administration of congressionally directed spending, commonly known as “earmarks,” for community project funding. These grants reflect projects that are identified in annual appropriations legislation. 

HUD is currently working with the FY2022 grantees and looks forward to working with the FY2023 awardees on their projects.  

Here you can find up-to-date information for recipients of Fiscal Years 2022 and 2023 Congressionally-directed grants.
