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, Christine Walker, Executive Director of the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission (UVLSRPC) (http://www NULL.uvlsrpc NULL.org/), presented updates about the work her organization has been doing in New Hampshire, including food mapping, a housing needs assessment, and conducting policy and regulatory audits.
