HUD Awards Spur Sustainability Planning

HUD has awarded $98 million to 45 regions throughout the country in an effort to spur more sustainability planning efforts.

Next American City's Yonah Freemark looks at the awards and what they do and don't do.

"These funds, distributed by the Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program, will allow cities to better consider how they want to develop over short and long-term periods. Some grants are designed to help regions develop sustainability plans from the start, whereas others will aid in implementation.

None of the money, unfortunately, goes towards actual implementation."
