Economic Development Initiative - Community Project Funding Grants

HUD’s Office of Community Planning and Development, Congressional Grants Division is responsible for the administration of congressionally-directed spending under the Economic Development Initiative - Community Project Funding (CPF).

What are Economic Development Initiative - Community Project Funding (CPF) grants?

CPF grants are selected through a congressionally-directed application process. HUD does not facilitate the grant application process.

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.

Who is eligible to receive these funds?

Projects selected for Community Project Funding are listed in the Joint Explanatory Statement (JES) that accompanies a specific fiscal year’s appropriations act. The JES lists projects by entity, project name, award amount and congressional sponsor.

Only entities named in the JES for a specific fiscal year are eligible to receive these grant funds.
