Kansas City Awarded $4.25 million Grant for "Sustainable Communities"

I am catching up on some old news, so here's a good piece of news from a few weeks ago. The Department of Housing and Urban Development has awarded $4.5 million to the Kansas City metro area to support more liveable and sustainable communities. It is a new three year proposal called Creating Sustainable Places "intended to build economic competitiveness by connecting housing with good jobs, quality schools and transportation."

Kansas City was just one of forty-five areas awarded grants. It will be interesting to see what projects the money is used for.
