Nikhil Kaza—PI. In May 2007 the National Center for Smart Growth at the University of Maryland received a grant from the EPA’s Collaborative Science and Technology Network for Sustainability entitled:  “Reality Check Plus—Envisioning a Sustainable Maryland.” That grant helped to support the development of models to examine nutrient loading in the Chesapeake Bay and residential energy consumption in a regional scenario planning exercise. The project has progressed as planned, but this project, also funded by the EPA with the University of Maryland, will take it a step further: it will link the econometric models developed for a complementary project to the Chesapeake Bay model so that impacts of various economic and demographic scenarios can be understood.
