See How Federal Grants Support HPD in FY 2021
Federal Funding: All
HPD’s FY21 Adopted Budget is more than $1 billion, of which 68 percent ($715 million) comes from the federal government through eleven individual grants. Of those, just two federal grants account for more than 80 percent of HPD’s federal grants.
 According to NY’s Financial Plan federal funds make up 59 percent ($1.9 billion) of NYCHA’s operating budget in addition to the capital budget relying heavily on federal funding. Therefore, there is a huge portion of federal funding that supports housing that is not included in this analysis.
Federal Funding: By Program Area
HPD’s budget is divided into eleven program areas. Each program area relies on a mix of funding sources and is uniquely vulnerable to budget cuts. For example, Housing Operations – Section 8— which supports agency programs that provide rental subsidies to low-income households— relies on the largest sum of federal grants ($506 million) and relies on the largest share of federal grants (48 percent).
