Government Grants within the United States Housing Sector
Page 2

The HUD offers various programs and grants that are especially designed to impact the way consumers and property developers do business. Some of the most notable programs of the HUD are the Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), the HOME Program, Shelter Plus Care, Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG), Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy program, and THE Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program.

HUD also offers grants, just like the Project Rental Assistance Demonstration Program, which specially established to provide project-based rental assistance funding to State housing agencies and identify, stimulate, and support sustaining innovative state approaches that will transform the provision of housing for persons with disabilities while providing access to appropriate support and services.

Meanwhile, the Rural Housing Preservation Grants, seeks to assist very low- and low-income homeowners in repairing and rehabilitating their homes in rural areas, as well as assists rental property owners and cooperative housing complexes in repairing and rehabilitating their units if they agree to make such units available and accessible to low- and very low-income persons.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development is the mother agency in the Executive branch of the United States federal government. Hence it can not fully function and operate state-wide, which is practically the reason why each state has established their own housing agency and authority.

New York has the State of New York Mortgage Agency. California has California Housing Finance Agency, while Washington has Washington State Housing Finance Commission.

All of these agencies offer programs that are tailored to the needs of their residents --- may they be first time homebuyers, renters, or real estate developers.
