U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan recently announced that LEED® for Neighborhood Development will be used to score the location efficiency of grant applications.

HUD will apply the criteria to grant submissions to the upcoming Sustainable Communities Planning Grants and others, totaling $3.25 billion in available grant funds.

“It’s time that federal dollars stopped encouraging sprawl and started lowering the barriers to the kind of sustainable development our country needs and our communities want,” said Donovan.
