Welcome to the Smart Growth Clearinghouse

The Smart Growth Information Clearinghouse is your one stop on the web for the best information on effective growth, development and preservation practices.         

By providing timely information on relevant news, events, funding opportunities, awards and resources, the clearinghouse helps communities pursue development choices that deliver environmental, economic, public health and quality of life benefits. The goal of the clearinghouse is to support local decision-making that fosters healthy, resilient and economically vibrant communities.

The clearinghouse is also the virtual home of the Smart Growth Network, a nationally recognized coalition of leadership organizations that have formally endorsed the principles of smart growth.
