HUD is pleased to share with you this inaugural edition of the Sustainable Communities eNews. As a partner with public housing authorities, cities, community development leaders, housing advocates and other federal agencies, HUD supports collaborative approaches to creating more sustainable communities. The Sustainable Communities Resource Center and eNewsletter are two new venues to share information on emerging best practices that America’s communities and regions are pioneering to make our communities more economically competitive, inclusive, and energy efficient.

There is no single model for sustainability. Rather, there are many models that reflect the unique goals and diversity of America’s cities, towns, and regions. In this issue, we share highlights that capture this innovation and diversity; from regional planning efforts in central Iowa, creating a shared vision to guide future housing, transportation and environmental investments to an innovative program in Philadelphia to create healthier, locally-grown food options in low-income communities, and from building affordable housing in an emerging transportation-rich neighborhood in Atlanta, GA to a new multi-use, net zero energy development at UC-Davis.
