Yesterday, it was announced that the City of Hudson has received a New York State Anti-Displacement Learning Network grant and will be participating in a three-phase program to address displacement of residents. In Phase 1, municipal teams will learn about various strategies to address displacement through webinars and peer-to-peer discussions. In Phase 2, each municipal team will receive twenty hours of technical assistance to select an anti-displacement strategy and develop a plan to implement the chosen strategy. During this phase, each team may submit a funding request of up to $1 million to implement the chosen strategy. In Phase 3, municipal teams that have been awarded implementation funding will execute their chosen strategies.
Gossips posted information about this grant program back in October when the Common Council approved submitting the grant application. The New York State Anti-Displacement Learning Network is a collaboration between the New York State Office of the Attorney General and a national not-for-profit called Enterprise, whose mission is "to create opportunity for low- and moderate-income people through affordable housing in diverse, thriving communities."
