The US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities (http://portal NULL.hud NULL.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/sustainable_housing_communities) held its 2012 Sustainable Communities Grantee Convening December 3-5 in Washington, DC.  The convening brought together all the grantees from the Sustainable Communities grant program (which include both Community Challenge Grants (http://portal NULL.hud NULL.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/sustainable_housing_communities/HUD-DOT_Community_Challenge_Grants) and Regional Planning Grants (http://portal NULL.hud NULL.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_offices/sustainable_housing_communities/sustainable_communities_regional_planning_grants)) to network, share best practices, and learn more about federal resources to support local and state projects.  The NADO Research Foundation serves as a capacity building team to the Rural Areas, Small Towns, and Tribes cohort of grantees.

During the “Rural Successes and Opportunities in Creating Sustainable Communities and Regions” breakout session held December 3, Troy Maggied and Karen Rogulja of the Southwestern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SWWRPC) (http://swwrpc NULL.org/wordpress/) discussed recent accomplishments of the Grow Southwest Wisconsin (http://www NULL.growsouthwest NULL.org/) initiative, including data collection, building partnerships, and public involvement efforts.
