The FRCOG and its project partners were selected in 2010 as one of 45 regional areas nationwide to receive a HUD Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant. The plan is used to guide local and regional sustainable planning and implementation activities, and addresses housing, transportation, economic development, energy, infrastructure, and natural and cultural resources.

“Sustainable Franklin County” was given an American Planning Association Massachusetts Chapter Comprehensive Planning Award in 2013 for its unusually high merit. This award reflects the great work by many FRCOG planners and staff from our Consortium Members: Community Action, Franklin County Regional Housing & Redevelopment Authority, Franklin County Community Development Corporation, the North Quabbin Community Coalition and the towns of Deerfield, Greenfield, Montague & Orange.
