Preferred Sustainability Status (PSS)

Buffalo Niagara’s successful application to the HUD Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant program has given our region “Preferred Sustainability Status.” This means that for certain grant programs, HUD will award two bonus points to applications from our region that promote the livability principles and align with the work being done under One Region Forward. This opportunity extends to any community, organization or agency within Erie or Niagara counties, regardless of its current or past involvement with 1RF.

If you would like to be considered to receive these bonus points on a current application to HUD, please complete the following form.
