Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program

The Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program will support metropolitan and multijurisdictional planning efforts that integrate housing, land use, economic and workforce development, transportation, and infrastructure investments in a manner that empowers jurisdictions to consider the interdependent
challenges of 1) economic competitiveness and revitalization; 2) social equity, inclusion, and access to opportunity; 3) energy use and climate change; and 4) public health and environmental impact.

Of the $100 million appropriated, $2 million will be reserved for capacity support grants distributed separately, and not less than $25 million shall be awarded to regions with populations of less than 500,000.
