The Affordable and Special Needs Housing (ASNH) Program goals are to create and preserve affordable housing units within the commonwealth of Virginia, with an emphasis on non-entitlement areas. The program achieves these goals by providing assistance in the form of financing to projects that will meet local affordable housing needs and support state housing policy.  Approximately $2.5 million in HOME funds will be made available during this application cycle to assist affordable housing projects selected through the ASNH program application process.  

An additional $700,000 is also available to provide one-time gap financing for projects serving persons with severe mental illness.  Applicants should complete the standard HOME application, along with the new supplemental attachment.

Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) and the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) announcement

The  Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) and the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) announced the availability of $65.8 million through the Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization (POWER) Initiative  to develop new strategies for economic growth and worker advancement for communities that have historically relied on the coal economy for economic stability.  Communities and regions that have been negatively impacted by changes in the coal economy, including mining, coal fired power plants and related transportation, logistics and manufacturing supply chains, can apply for resources to help strengthen their economies and workforces.  Funds are available for a range of activities, including:
  • Developing projects that diversify local and regional economies, create jobs in new and/or existing industries, attract new sources of job-creating investment and provide a range of workforce services and skills training;
  • Building partnerships to attract and invest in the economic future of coal-impacted communities;
  • Increasing capacity and other technical assistance fostering long term economic growth and opportunity in coal-impacted communities.
The POWER Initiative is a multi-agency effort aligning and targeting federal economic and workforce development resources to communities and workers that have been affected by job losses in coal mining, coal power plant operations, and coal-related supply chain industries due to the changing economics of America's energy production.
 
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, and awards will be announced later this year. For more information about the POWER Initiative, including application materials, visit  www.arc.gov/power.
