The Region Forward Coalition recently applied for a HUD Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant to support Region Forward's implementation. The grant proposal was submitted on October 6, 2011. The proposal Equity Through Transit, is an opportunity to address some of the greatest barriers to implementing Region Forward. The proposal seeks to replicate the components that make some of our communities so resilient - a good mix of affordable housing, jobs, and services, urban form and density - in the region's transit corridors. This work is designed to advance Region Forward's vision for sustainable growth around transit, while supporting the next-generation of investments in new transit and capital improvements. These investments totaling $14 billion, will touch every jurisdiction in the region, providing a unique opportunity to align local, state, and federal resources with new transit infrastructure to create compact, healthy neighborhoods that provide access to jobs, services and opportunities to residents most in need.
Equity Through Transit is designed to have the following outcomes for the National Capital Region:
