HUD LAUNCHES NEW COMMUNITY INVESTMENT TOOL
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today unveiled the Community Assessment Reporting Tool (CART) – an innovative reference and mapping tool created to help answer the question, “How is HUD investing in my community?” CART provides a snapshot of HUD investments across a community, cutting the time it takes to generate this information from several business days to minutes.
CART uses geospatial technology to show the wide 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 at a variety of geographies.
“This tool provides real-time information on HUD investments in communities across the country with just a few clicks,” said HUD Secretary Julián Castro. “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.”
CART is available via Egis.hud.gov/cart and is responsive and mobile-friendly.
