HUD announces award of nearly $100 million in grants under the Sustainable Communities and Regional Planning Grant Program
On October 14, 2010, HUD announced the first recipients of the Sustainable Communities and Regional Planning Grant Program. Across the US, 45 regional areas will receive part of the nearly $100 million in funding. This new program will assist State, local, and tribal governments to create and implement regional plans that integrate affordable housing, economic development, land use and transportation to build livable, sustainable communities. As part of the Administration’s Partnership for Sustainable Communities, both EPA and DOT helped develop this program and reviewed applications.
