An Equity Guide to Building Sustainable Communities

The Obama Administration’s $150 million Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grants program could be a vital investment in bringing equity to all communities -- but only if equity is at the heart of the funded projects.

Download the PolicyLink Equity Guide to Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grants to make sure your application is built on a foundation of equity.

The initiative – a joint effort of DOT, HUD, and EPA – would coordinate federal housing, transportation, and other infrastructure investments to protect the environment, promote equitable development, and address the challenges of climate change

Applications are due August 23, 2010. Please visit our Interagency Partnership for Sustainable Communities page for updates and additional resources during the coming weeks.

If you have equity-related questions in preparing a grant, please email us at sci@policylink.org and we will do our best to answer your queries.

Together, we can ensure greater regional equity!
