Sustainable Communities Consortium (SCC) MOA

Comprised of NYMTC and three MPOs in coastal Connecticut, the Long Island Regional Planning Council, Nassau and Suffolk counties, nine cities in the lower Hudson Valley and Connecticut, and the Regional Plan Association, the grant period closed on May 30, 2014. Over the course of the grant, the program completed eight place-specific projects, two corridor-level studies and four regional-scale programs.


The Consortium's goal was to support local and regional planning to leverage the region’s robust transit network and promote economic opportunity. ​Its activities have already influenced policy in cities and have provided the impetus for future change.
