Community 2020[TM] HUD Community Planning Software Training Manual.
Department of Housing and Urban Development, Washington, DC.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development has developed its Community 2020 software to make it possible to depict graphically a community's housing resources, demographics, and level of economic development to use in community development activities and other planning processes. The combination of region- wide data and easy-to-use software provides everything community leaders need to participate in neighborhood revitalization and community redevelopment. This manual explains how to get started using the software and how to use it to map community characteristics, define grantee activities, identify resources, and propose additional projects. The software can help analyze a community's demographics and can be used to prepare a consolidated plan for development or change and to print maps of aspects of the area. Appendixes contain a description of regional geographic files and an answer sheet for exercises in the text. An attachment introduces the software. (SLD)
