Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant

HUD Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant

“Transit as an Economic Catalyst”

The Regional Planning Council, on behalf of twenty six partners that comprise the East Central Florida Sustainable Communities Consortium, was awarded $2.4 million from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to plan for sustainable transit oriented development around SunRail station locations. The majority of the grant funds were passed directly to local governments to develop and prepare for implementation of these community planning efforts. SunRail represents an historic opportunity to transform the communities using the commuter rail service as a catalyst for sustainable and inclusive growth, particularly in minority and/or low-income neighborhoods adjacent to several of the committed stations. The grant funding supports detailed station area planning for 6 out of the 12 Phase I SunRail stations, affordable housing assessments for all 12 Phase I stations, and regional collaboration to share best practices and to guide future transit planning in East Central Florida.
