HUD Sustainable Communities Capacity Building Grant

CEPM is supporting the national Sustainable Communities Learning Network as a capacity building provider to Sustainable Communities grantees across the nation.  CEPM leads a team comprised of members of the Environmental Finance Center Network (EFCN), specifically the New England Environmental Finance Center, the Environmental Finance Center at the University of Maryland, and the Southwest Environmental Finance Center, as well as two other University of Louisville centers: Center for Hazards Research and Center for Infrastructure Research

 Our team’s technical assistance focuses on:

    • Building the capacity of nearly 400 Sustainable Communities and EPA grantees to meet their workplan objectives, including implementing effective strategies for infrastructure investment and local and regional planning.
    • Fostering grantee peer-sharing to encourage coordination between projects as well as sharing of sustainability practices.
    • Helping grantees integrate water infrastructure, green infrastructure, consent decrees, brownfields redevelopment, and resiliency into their local and regional planning efforts.

Grantees and professionals working on projects supported by the federal Partnership for Sustainable Communities are encouraged to visit the Sustainable Communities Learning Network website for resources, technical assistance, and training events.
