Capital Region Sustainable Communities Partnership

Leaders from governmental, business and non-profit organizations formed Capital Region Sustainable Communities to advance and measure progress towards a healthy environment, economy and communities. The CRSC Partnership meets bi-monthly to collaborate on shared goals and outcomes, and to oversee grant activities. Partnership Work Groups meet approximately monthly to move CRSC projects forward.

Funding support comes from the federal Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant. In summer 2010, twenty-seven governmental, business and non-profit entities came together as Capital Region Sustainable Communities (CRSC) to seek funding for collaborative and multi-faceted approaches to regional challenges. Led by the Capital Area Regional Planning Commission (CARPC), the Partnership secured a three-year, $1.975 million Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Capital Region Sustainable Communities Initiative. The CRSC promotes regional collaboration and sustainable communities through a range of activities.
