This grant will allow Smart Growth America to partner with Michigan state agencies on two related projects that promote more livable and environmentally sustainable communities. Smart Growth America is a national organization dedicated to the broad adoption of compact development and multimodal transportation principles. The projects covered under this grant include: 1) Assisting the Michigan Department of Transportation with implementation of Michigan's so-called "complete streets" legislation, which is intended to make roads accessible to all legal users, and 2) partnering with the Michigan State Housing Development Authority on a series of studies that assess the potential for walkable urban development in the state's metropolitan areas.
This renewal grant provides partial support to the Center for Community Progress to further its mission of combating the negative effects of property vacancy and abandonment in post-industrial urban areas. Headquartered in Flint and with offices in Washington, D.C., the grantee addresses these issues at the federal, state and local levels through a combination of research, policy reform and advocacy, technical assistance and capacity building, and communications programs.
