Creating a Foundation of Opportunity for the Hartford - Springfield Region

As one of only 45 regions nationwide to receive a 2010
Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant from the
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the
Hartford/Springfield bi-state region will roll out an ambitious
work plan over the next three years to position itself as a
leader in sustainable community development and a creator
of more livable communities for all of the corridor’s 1.6 million
residents. The $4.2 million award will be used to create a
foundation of opportunity—in housing, education,
transportation, employment, nutrition, and community resources.

Sustainable Knowledge Corridor Consortium

Three regional planning agencies - Capitol Region Council of Governments, Pioneer Valley Planning Commission and Central Connecticut Regional Planning Agency - representing some 80 communities, partnered to apply for this grant and successfully recruited more than thirty diverse agencies to create the Knowledge Corridor Consortium. This body will provide general
direction to the initiative and individual members will supply planning and technical
assistance on specific project elements, as well as cash matches and leveraged contributions
to supplement the HUD award. In addition, a handful of state agencies formally
pledged their support to the project, and will be invited to serve in an advisory capacity.  For a full listing of the Sustainable Knowledge Corridor Consortium Members, please see the SKC 2-pager.
