WEBINARS: Building Sustainable Communities
To create sustainable communities, equity and health organizations must drive planning and investments in housing, health, environment, transportation, and other infrastructure needs.
The $100 million HUD-DOT-EPA Sustainable Communities Regional Planning grants and the $75 million HUD-DOT Challenge grants are an important new opportunity to make this happen. Click here to see the Notice of Funding Availability released today.
We have two great opportunities for your organization to find out more and engage in this vital effort:
Wednesday, June 30, 3:00 – 5:00pm EDT
Speakers will include Maria Zimmerman, Deputy Director, HUD Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities; Kalima Rose, Director, PolicyLink Center for Infrastructure Equity; and Vu Bang Nguyen, Land Use Coordinator, Urban Habitat.
Sponsored by PolicyLink, LISC, National Housing Conference, Reconnecting America, and Smart Growth America.
