HUD Community Challenge Planning & DOT Tiger II Planning Grant: This notice announces DOT's and HUD's intention to offer funding through a competition made available as a NOFA under its Community Challenge and TIGER II Planning Grants. A. The Partnership for Sustainable Communities. This NOFA is being initiated in close coordination between DOT, HUD and the EPA, through the Partnership for Sustainable Communities (the Partnership). The Partnership was conceived to coordinate Federal housing, transportation and environmental investments, protect public health and the environment, promote equitable development, and help address the challenges of climate change. Recognizing the fundamental role that public investment plays in achieving these outcomes, the Administration charged three agencies whose programs most directly impact the physical form of communities HUD, DOT, and EPA to lead the way in reshaping the role of the Federal government in helping communities obtain the capacity to embrace a more sustainable future. One of the first acts of the Partnership was to agree to a set of six ''Livability Principles'' to govern the work of the Partnership and for each of the three agencies to strive to incorporate into their policies and funding programs to the degree possible. In addition, each agency has clear and defined roles: HUD will take the lead in funding, evaluating, and supporting integrated regional planning for sustainable development, and will invest in sustainable housing and community development efforts. DOT will focus on building the capacity of transportation agencies to integrate their planning and investments into broader plans and actions that promote sustainable development, and investing in transportation infrastructure that directly supports sustainable development and livable communities. EPA will provide technical assistance to communities and States to help them implement sustainable community strategies, and develop environmental sustainability metrics and practices. The three agencies have made a commitment to coordinate activities, integrate funding requirements, and adopt a common set of performance metrics for use by grantees.
