What is Sustainable Communities?
The Sustainable Communities program is administered by the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development, and is described as “a place-based designation offering a comprehensive package of resources that support holistic strategies for community development, revitalization and sustainability. Led by the Department, Sustainable Communities has provided local governments with a framework for promoting environmentally, economically and socially responsible growth and development in existing older communities."
The Sustainable Community designation is a threshold requirement for application to certain state programs.
