Initiative for Sustainable Communities and States

The Initiative for Sustainable Communities and States (ISCS) is a project of the Smart Growth Leadership Institute

The Initiative for Sustainable Communities and States website is a one-stop portal for state and local leaders to connect to the federal Sustainable Communities Partnership between HUD, DOT, and EPA. The site aggregates key updates from all three partnership agencies and the White House. It also publicizes information on relevant webinars, conferences, trainings and projects related to federal sustainability opportunities. In addition to providing federal sustainability news and information about events, organizers hope to establish the site as a vibrant e-networking hub at which to ask questions, trade ideas, and share innovative projects with others around the country.
