U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) new Sustainable Communities Resource Center

The objective of the Sustainable Communities Initiative is to stimulate more integrated and sophisticated regional planning to guide state, metropolitan, and local investments in land use, transportation and housing. The Initiative also helps localities in their efforts to address regulatory barriers to economic revitalization and expand housing options for residents of all ages, incomes, and abilities. The Office does this through the Sustainable Communities Resource Center, the Sustainable Communities Research program, and its two planning grant programs: the Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant Program and the Community Challenge Planning Grant Program
