Henderson, NV Awarded $3.5M HUD Challenge Grant

The largest regional plan in Clark County history, Henderson will be using the funds to more sustainably link transportation, land use, and people. Guy Dawson reports.

"'We have data that shows that low-income people spend most of their money on housing and transportation,' said Richard Rojas, a planner with the city of Henderson. 'Housing, jobs and transit need to be connected, so that citizens don't have to spend so much of their money on transportation.'

According to Garcia-Vause, the department of community development applied for these same grants a couple of years ago and was turned down.

'When we decided to reapply, we made plans that would improve sustainability, even if we didn't get the grant,' she remarked. 'Now that we have been awarded the grant, we are targeting next year as the time to start making projections on how we will grow.'"
