On behalf of a County-wide consortium of municipal, planning, transportation, energy, housing, conservation and other interested non-profits, Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission was awarded a nearly $1 million grant through an unprecedented interagency partnership. For the first time, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) ensures, through the Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant program, that policies, programs and funding consider a holistic regional planning approach that integrates economic workforce development, housing, land use, transportation, and infrastructure investments with mindful and efficient use of federal dollars. CCRPC Executive Director Charlie Baker along with Sarah Carpenter, Executive Director, Vermont Housing Finance Agency and Paul Conner, Director of Planning and Zoning for the City of South Burlington share the potential impacts of this grant.
