Established in 2008, the GRADD Community of the Year Award honors a city or county who has initiated significant efforts to improve the quality of life for their residents.

“Our region’s greatest natural resources are our people and communities,” said GRADD executive director Jiten Shah. “These awards allow us to shine a spotlight on progressive citizens and innovative local governments.”
