Use Federal Funds in Strategic Maximally Impactful Ways
St. Louis County shall partner with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to develop an approach that directs Community Development Block Grants (CDBGs) to be more impactful. Specific consideration should be given to local partnerships that use funds for more transformational community development projects that invest in low-income communities.
When possible use public transit as an alternative to commuting or exploring the region. Participate in existing programs intended to increase ridership; visit Citizens for Modern Transit for more information on trying our local transit system: http://cmt-stl.org/programs/cmts-try-ride-program/.
