The city of Rochester will receive $11.3 million for anti-poverty activities, including nearly $8 million for the Community Development Block Grant program.

Rochester will get nearly $2 million for the Home Investment Partnerships program for low-income families, $687,700 for Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS, and $666,000 for the Emergency Solutions Grants program for those that are homeless or in danger of losing their homes.

The four grants come through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

“By increasing our investment in affordable housing and economic opportunities, we can help break the cycle of poverty and empower citizens to improve their lives and get ahead,” Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-Perinton, said in a statement announcing the funding.
