On January 10, 2012, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Regional Administrator Ophelia Basgal joined Congresswoman Doris Matsui in Sacramento to announce that Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA) will receive a $300,000 Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant.
The award is one of two federal grants that SHRA applied for to help create a comprehensive plan for repositioning three of its largest public housing developments. The strategy developed under the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Planning Grant incorporates current or future revitalization planning efforts in surrounding neighborhoods and former redevelopment areas. One of only 13 grantees nationwide, SHRA will use the funds to begin grassroots efforts to revitalize the Twin Rivers Community Housing, a distressed public housing development at 321 Eliza Street, and to transform the Sacramento River District-Railyards neighborhood.

In May 2013, SHRA submitted an application to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for up to $500,000 in 2013 Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Planning Grant funds to assist in the development of a Neighborhood Transformation Plan for the revitalization of the Marina Vista and Alder Grove public housing communities. The proposed Plan would redevelop the existing fully occupied complexes to create 751 public housing replacement units in vibrant mixed-use and mixed-income communities serving households with a wide range of incomes.
