The Camden housing authority will receive $300,000 in federal funding to develop a revitalization plan for the Clement T. Branch Village public housing complex in the city’s Centerville section.

Camden is one of two cities in the state and 17 in the country to receive a Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant distributed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), U.S. Sens. Robert Menendez and Frank R. Lautenberg (D., N.J.) announced Thursday. Newark also is expected to receive a $300,000 planning grant.

The housing authority will consult with residents and local partners to develop a rejuvenation plan for the neighborhood off Mount Ephraim Avenue. The goal is to generate jobs and better access to transportation, education and health care.
