Sustainable Communities Grant

In 2010, MAPC was awarded a $4 million Sustainable Communities Grant. This grant supported the implementation of MetroFuture through local planning efforts, state and regional policy work, development of tools and data, and capacity building for local residents and leaders. With the conclusion of the grant in the summer 2014, MAPC and its partners are continuing the work we began but via a variety of other funding sources.
