EPA Initiates Nationwide Greening America's Capitals Program

greening america's capitals


One of the main thrusts of the green building philosophy is the belief that urban neighborhoods can be sustainable, promote a sense of community, be economically viable, and offer environmental benefits. Those involved in promoting green building have been given a powerful boost with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) new Greening America’s Capitals program.

The Greening America's Capitals program offers green design and development assistance to state capitals interested in setting up viable green building initiatives within their cities. Although the design teams are provided and funded by the EPA, the Greening America's Capitals program is actually part of a combined initiative that includes the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and the EPA under the aegis of the Partnership for Sustainable Communities.

State capitals interested in taking advantage of the green building program are required to submit letters of interest by July 9. The four capitals selected for the first year of the Greening America’s Capitals program will be announced in Fall 2010.

The ideas and drive behind the green building movement are gaining traction with programs such as Greening America’s Capitals and the LEED rating system for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) launched in April.
