Called the Supplemental Loan Insurance Multifamily Rental Housing Program and referred to as Program #14.151 in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance, it can be used to finance repairs, additions and improvements to multifamily projects, group practice facilities, hospitals, or nursing homes already insured by HUD or held by HUD. Major movable equipment for insured nursing homes, group practice facilities or hospitals may be covered by a mortgage under this program.

The answer to this is the same answer to any good question, It Depends. Some grants are taxable and some are not. If you get a grant to start a business, I would assume you would have to treat that as taxable income but you would probably not pay any taxes on it because you would use the money to buy business deductible items like computers, office space, advertising etc. Grants and scholarships in excess of tuition, fees, books, supplies, and equipment are considered taxable income. Grants given to veterans not taxable. A lot of grants given out to pay your energy bills or help pay your mortgage are not taxable.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has set up thousands of non-profit organizations around the country that offer free help if you are having trouble paying your rent or mortgage. Some even offer money. Contact: Counseling Center Locator 800-569-4287 or 800-217-6970
Contact one or many of your local U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Counseling Agencies. These groups can help with problems concerning your rent or mortgage and some even have grant money to get you through tough times. They can also help with your credit problems or direct you to an organization that can help you without ripping you off. Remember, if the office near you is not helpful enough contact one a little further away. It could be worth the drive.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development sometimes needs to sell multifamily housing projects that are owned by the Department or are subject to a mortgage held by the Department. The property can also be sold with a grant for the rehabilitation of the property if the new owners meet certain requirements.
