Centralina Council 
wins $4.9M HUD grant

The Centralina Council of Governments Connect Consortium, a group of regional business and community representatives, has been awarded a $4.9 million regional planning grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The grant will fund a three-year study on growth and development in the Charlotte metro area.

COG was one of three North Carolina groups to learn last week that they were awarded part of $96 million in 2011 Sustainable Communities grants.

The regional planning grants are targeted at linking land-use and transportation decisions to foster economic development, affordability and sustainability, HUD says.

The local study will examine regional issues, such as housing and infrastructure development.
