HUD-DOT-EPA Partnership for Sustainable Communities: Tools and Key Resources
One of the goals of the HUD-DOT-EPA Partnership for Sustainable Communities (PSC) is to help communities develop and support neighborhoods that provide transportation choices and affordable housing while increasing economic competitiveness and directing resources toward places with existing infrastructure. In support of this goal, the PSC has compiled a list of tools and other resources available to planners to help develop and support sustainable communities.
These tools cover a broad range of topics under the categories of: Community Design and Planning, Transportation and Housing, the Environment, and Food Access. The list includes tools developed by the PSC partner agencies - the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) - as well as other Federal agencies and nongovernmental organizations.
