Plan Goals and Partners
Community Planning Grant
HAWS was one of nine housing authorities selected for a $500,000 2013 Choice Neighborhood Planning Grant.
The plan to rebuild and transform the community affects more than just housing; it creates opportunities for residents by addressing education, healthcare and jobs as well.
HAWS is working closely with the community to gather ideas for the Cleveland Avenue Neighborhood Transformation Plan.
Through the generous support of the U.S. Department of Housing and Economic Development (HUD) Choice Neighborhoods Initiative, we have been given a unique chance to bring together the residents of Cleveland Avenue, and professional services across the disciplines of planning, design, land development and community and economic development, to create a strategic Transformation Plan. This Plan will provide the community with a direction and means for transforming the Cleveland Avenue Neighborhood into a complete and livable community that provides affordable housing choices, economic opportunity, and community assets and services that improve the social and physical well-being of the community.
