CHOICE NEIGHBORHOOD MISSION HUD’s new Choice Neighborhoods Initiative (CNI) promotes a comprehensive approach to transforming distressed areas of concentrated poverty by linking housing improvements with a wider variety of public services including schools, public transit and employment opportunities.

  4. CHOICE NEIGHBORHOOD VISION To have a thoughtful inclusive community building process that leads to a transformation strategy that ultimately results in a community of “choice”. A community enriched with quality housing, education, entertainment, employment, health and growth opportunities. A community whose assets are “owned” and “managed” by its residents long after Choice is gone.
