WASHINGTON - Housing and Urban Development Secretary Andrew Cuomo today announced $3.6 million in HUD grants under a work-study program to help pay college expenses of about 120 low-income students preparing for careers in community planning and development.

"HUD is investing to help train a new generation of professionals who will work to revitalize cities and towns in the 21st century," Cuomo said. "This investment will build better futures not just for the students involved, but for the communities around the nation where they will work."
