A new collaboration of officials from southern New York and Connecticut has received a $3.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to create livable, sustainable communities and growth centers around the region’s transit network.

The program, titled the New York-Connecticut Sustainable Communities Initiative, brings together representatives from five New York and four Connecticut cities, as well as Nassau and Suffolk counties and the heads of six regional planning organizations, including the Long Island Regional Planning Council.

The $3.5 million will be split between the 11 municipalities, under the jurisdiction of the Regional Plan Association, in order to undertake 16 large-scale transit oriented development and neighborhood sustainability projects at key points along the Metro Transit Authority’s commuter rail system.
