Smart Growth: Communities Leading the Way

As part of its Neighborhoods, Regions and Smart Growth Project, The National Neighborhoods Coalition (NNC) is looking for examples of community-based organizations that are addressing the environmental, economic, and social impacts of sprawl through local community development or community building initiatives. 

All applicants will receive free copies of the National Neighborhood Coalition's project reports and information about how to contact others who are doing similar work. 

COMMUNITIES LEADING THE WAY will bring attention to innovative, community-level efforts and help ensure that other low-income neighborhoods and communities of color have a voice in and benefit from regional smart growth policies, instead of being left out or left behind. Applications are available +AFs- +AF0- online and must be submitted by October 31st. 

Home page for NNC is at:  +AFs- +AF0-
