HUD Preferred Sustainability Status
CMAP's successful application for a HUD Sustainable Communities Regional Planning grant, which supports the Local Technical Assistance program, has also given our region "Preferred Sustainability Status." This means that for certain competitive programs, HUD will award bonus points to applications from our region that further the goals of GO TO 2040 and federal livability principles. For more details, please see this CMAP fact sheet.
The LTA home page has details of activities sponsored by the HUD Sustainable Communities grant to CMAP for support of community projects that advance the principles of GO TO 2040. In our second call for projects through the Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program, CMAP received over 100 proposals from more than 80 applicants.
