The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)’s Sustainable Communities Initiative offered support for sustainable development projects in cities and regions across the country. Grantees received access to capacity-building resources, including CNT’s team of technical experts, to help with implementation. Reconnecting America led the implementation efforts and compiled all of the resulting issue briefs into a culminating report. The report includes articles on the Housing and Transportation (H+T®) Affordability Index, cargo-oriented development, and sustainable development performance indicators and benchmarks.
