Grant Money Available From HUD For Sustainable Housing Projects

Posted on | July 29, 2011 | No Comments

In Washington U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan announced that $95 million is available to support local initiatives to expand housing choices, improve connections between employment centers and homes, and reduce barriers to creating economically vital and sustainable communities.

HUD’s Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities oversees the Regional Planning and Community Challenge Planning Grant Program. Communities apply for the grants, which are awarded competitively.

This year’s program encourages grantees to support regional planning efforts that integrate housing, land-use, economic and workforce development, transportation and infrastructure developments that work together to revitalize a community. The program places a priority on partnerships – the collaboration of arts and culture, philanthropy and innovative ideas to the regional planning process.

There are two funding categories:

Group 1 funds: Used to support the preparation of regional plans for sustainable development.

Group 2 funds: Used to support efforts to modify existing regional plans so that they’re in accordance with the Partnership for Sustainable Communities.

Grants are competitively awarded to state, local and tribal governments. This year’s grant program sets aside $3 million for jurisdictions with populations under 50,000.
