Capacity Building for Sustainable Communities

This NOFA is part of a cross-agency collaboration between HUD, the U. S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), known as the Partnership for Sustainable Communities.

HUD confers regularly with these partners.

The Capacity Building for Sustainable


Communities Program (Program), through this NOFA, will identify intermediary organizations that can provide capacity building support for communities engaged in planning efforts that support community involvement and integrate housing, land use, land cleanup and preparation for reuse, economic and workforce development, transportation, and infrastructure investments.

Each grantee will be expected to deliver capacity building support to communities across the United States.

The first purpose of the Program is to assemble a collection of capacity building service providers to work directly with the FY2010 and FY 2011 HUD Sustainable Communities Regional Planning and Community Challenge grant recipients, HUD Preferred Sustainability Status Communities, and EPA Sustainable Community Technical Assistance recipients and Brownfield Area Wide Planning grant recipients (collectively �Sustainable Communities Grantees�), and enable them to fulfill their anticipated outcomes.

HUD and other Partnership agencies will work regularly with all selected intermediary service providers to maintain a coordinated and leveraged delivery approach that ensures the maximum benefit to local governments, regions, and planning entities and partners engaged in the prescribed activities.

The second purpose of the Program is to build a national coalition and leadership network of the Sustainable Communities Grantees.

The purpose of the network is to facilitate the exchange of successful strategies, lessons learned, emerging tools and public engagement strategies, and approaches for avoiding or minimizing pitfalls.

HUD will work with the selected intermediaries to develop a robust evaluation component for the network.
