Sustainable Communities Award Maps
The past few months have been an exciting time as large and small communities, representing all corners of the country, have worked on developing collaborative planning processes that will address the unique conditions in their region and which will improve the quality of life for the diverse people that live, work and play there.
The impetus for this has been competition for grants springing from the unprecedented partnership announced last year between the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency.
In October, HUD and DOT announced the finalists of the Sustainable Communities Regional Planning (SCRPG), Community Challenge, and TIGER II planning awards. Reconnecting America staff has been busy reviewing where these projects have been taking place and created a pair of maps that display all of the grants awarded by HUD & DOT under the Sustainable Communities and TIGER programs during FY2010.
The map below show grants by the political party of the member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing that district, or districts in the case of a regional award. (View map in separate window)
