Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC)

The Strategic Growth Council's Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) financially endorses land-use, housing, transportation, and land preservation projects to support infill and compact development that reduces greenhouse gas ("GHG") emissions. These projects are critical to the community because it allows for an overall better quality of life. It reduces air pollution, improves living conditions to low socio-economic status communities, improves public health, allows for the accessibility to jobs, housing, and social serves, it increases opportunities for active transportation, and assists in infill development. The coordination and implementation of the above improvements allows for a healthier community. It is important that cities integrate AHSC programs into their cities in order to facilitate a better quality of life for its community.
