Partnership for Sustainable Communities
In June 2009, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) joined forces to help communities nationwide improve access to affordable housing, increase transportation options and lower transportation costs while protecting the environment.
The Partnership for Sustainable Communities works to coordinate federal housing, transportation, water and other infrastructure investments to make neighborhoods more prosperous, allow people to live closer to jobs, save households’ time and money and reduce pollution. The partnership agencies incorporate six principles of livability into federal funding programs, policies and future legislative proposals.
