Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant

PolicyLink recently released The Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Guide: How to Link Equity to Each Rating Factor. The guide offers guidance to communities and applicants for how to ensure that equity principals are a part of submitted proposals. The guide is organized according to the five rating factors of the NOFA.  The application is due August 23, 2010.

HUD’s Sustainable Communities Initiative is part of a larger collaboration between the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Department of Transportation (DOT), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to stimulate comprehensive regional and community planning efforts that integrate transportation and housing investments to produce greater regional and local sustainable development patterns. Approximately $100 million in regional planning grants is available, with a quarter of that amount set aside for regions with populations of less than 500,000. Eligible applicants are "multijurisdictional and multisector partnership consisting of a consortium of government entities and non-profit partners." Interested community based organizations should connected with their local metropolitan planning organizations immediately.
