Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Twin Rivers

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.

HUD’s $3.6 million 2011 Choice Neighborhoods Initiative (CNI) Planning Grant expands the reach of the HOPE VI program which focuses on improving severely distressed public housing. The grant is intended to help communities develop a comprehensive Neighborhood Transformation Plan (NTP), identify strategic investment opportunities for renewal of these properties complementary to the surrounding area, and develop the necessary partnership support for the plan to be successfully implemented. The process will also reflect a broad partnership approach. Sacramento’s NTP will target the 218-unit Twin Rivers housing community which is ideally located in close proximity to downtown Sacramento and Richards Boulevard, a key commercial corridor, providing a prime transformation opportunity for the property and the surrounding redevelopment area.

The grant could provide a significant financial benefit for the City and County by leveraging millions of dollars in other public and private funds. As part of an approved implementation plan, those funds would be used to revitalize and integrate public housing into a mixed income development affordable to a range of income levels. The planning process would take 18-24 months and the implementation plan would be submitted in early 2013.
