Miami-Dade County has received a $40 million Choice Neighborhoods Implementation (CNI) grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The highly competitive grant will be used to transform Cutler Manor Apartments, an aging HUD-assisted housing development located in the Goulds neighborhood in South Dade, into a new more resilient mixed-income community and catalyze broader community change, from workforce initiatives to micro-business investments and mobility improvements.
Miami-Dade’s eight-year grant will put in motion a community-led plan to rebuild the Cutler Manor Apartments in multiple phases to increase the number of affordable housing units from 218 to 445 developed by Preservation of Affordable Housing, Inc. (POAH). This will create a mixture of affordable, workforce and market rate housing that is resilient and energy-efficient and improves quality of life. The program also aims to create amenity-rich neighborhoods with high-performing schools, economic opportunities, support services and other public improvements.
