Sustainable Communities Building Blocks Grants

February 4, 2011

Many communities have overcome hurdles of outdated zoning codes, lack of consensus around where and how to grow, and misconceptions about sustainable development approaches.  They’ve taken advantage of various standardized tools that have been developed and tested over the past decade. The Sustainable Communities Building Blocks Program will provide technical assistance to 20 communities on the use of “ready to go” tools.  The deadline for applying is February 23, 2011.  Find out more at US EPA Smart Growth.
