ANCHORAGE- A housing revitalization project in east Anchorage has won an award from a federal agency and the American Planning Association.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development is awarding the HUD Secretary's Opportunity and Empowerment Award to Cook Inlet Housing Authority for work in the Mountain View Village community.
The award recognizes excellence in community planning that produces increased economic development, employment, education, or housing choice and mobility for low- and moderate-income residents.
Mountain View is one of Anchorage's oldest neighborhoods.
HUD says in the award announcement that the neighborhood has been changed from blight and high concentrations of poverty to a thriving mixed-use commercial corridor that provides residents with affordable housing and jobs.
The award will be presented April 29 at the APA's National Planning Conference in Atlanta.
