Spokane Not Selected For HUD Grant

Well, the news is out and Spokane was not selected to receive a 2011 HUD Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant that we applied for. The selection process was very competitive; HUD only funded 29 grants from 190 eligible applicants.

It's unclear right now if there will be more grants offered in 2012, but if there are, we've got a jump on the application process anyway.

If you're interested in seeing who did get a grant, this link will take you to a list of succesful applicants.
