HUD launches new community investment tool
WASHINGTON – Dec. 9, 2016 – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) unveiled the Community Assessment Reporting Tool (CART) – a reference and mapping tool created to answer the question: “How is HUD investing in my community?”
CART uses geospatial technology to show the variety of HUD investments by city, state, county, metropolitan area or congressional district. It also provides an interactive mapping interface that allows users to explore HUD investments within their community and see property- and grant-level detail.
“In today’s 21st century global economy where information is needed almost immediately, HUD is committed to making our resources more accessible and easier to find,” says HUD Secretary Julián Castro.
HUD programs included in CART
- Community Planning and Development competitive and formula grants
- Rental assistance through HUD’s multifamily programs, Housing Choice vouchers and public housing properties
