Green Impact Zone of Missouri

The Green Impact Zone is an initiative focused on Kansas City in order to demonstrate that a community can be transformed by concentrating resources. Through funding, coordination, and partnerships, the initiative aims to create jobs, improve energy efficiency, and strengthen communities through rehabilitation of housing units, community services, job training and placement, and wellness programs. Notably, Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood announced a $50 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant, while a $20 million grant was announced by Vice-President Biden for energy retrofits in the Green Impact Zone and other Kansas City neighborhoods. Outside investments to the Zone total over $130 million coming from nine different investors.
