Based on research sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), this webinar will highlight some of the current activities, leading practices and achievements of sustainable communities created through a comprehensive, integrated approach to sustainability that is supported by inclusive engagement, equal access to services, and livable neighborhoods. The webinar will present findings from this study and feature presentations from three communities (Lewiston, ME; Washtenaw County & the City of Ann Arbor, MI; and Fort Collins, CO) whose policies, programs, and initiatives have facilitated their progress in achieving greater social equity and sustainability.
