Leveraging the Partnership: DOT, HUD, and EPA Programs for Sustainable Communities

In June 2009, the Partnership for Sustainable Communities was formed by 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). These three agencies have pledged to ensure that housing and transportation goals are met while simultaneously protecting the environment, promoting equitable development, and helping to address the challenges of climate change. The following Livability Principles are guiding their work: (1) Provide more transportation choices. (2) Promote equitable, affordable housing. (3) Enhance economic competitiveness. (4) Support existing communities. (5) Coordinate and leverage federal policies and investment. (6) Value communities and neighborhoods.
