STAR Communities

Washington, D.C.



The organization works to help cities and counties achieve healthy environments and strong economies by charting clear paths toward sustainable futures. It is using grant money to increase the adoption and implementation of the STAR Community Rating System, which provides a transparent, data-driven mechanism for evaluating, improving and certifying the social, economic and environmental sustainability of local communities.
