The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Office of Economic Resilience published the Green Infrastructure and the Sustainable Communities Initiative report. The report shares the green infrastructure, best practices and outputs of grantees under HUD’s Sustainable Communities Initiative (SCI). As part of HUD’s commitment under the Green Infrastructure Collaborative, the report features 30 HUD SCI grantees that have incorporated green infrastructure strategies and projects within their Community Challenge and Regional Planning grants.

The grantee profiles featured in the report present a brief background of the larger planning projects funded by HUD and how green infrastructure investments advanced communities’ goals for more vibrant economies, healthier environments and more effective public infrastructure. Project overviews detail the specific goals related to green infrastructure and the green infrastructure outputs or outcomes that are likely to result. Each profile includes links to other resources with more detailed information.
