Local Government Resources Toolkit

Local governments in California are increasingly expected to adopt sustainability best practices, yet often lack the resources to research, fund, and implement these practices. There are numerous state and federal resources and programs aimed at helping local governments and communities to achieve their sustainability goals.

The Local Government Resources Toolkit provides quick access to multiple state and federal resources that support initiatives in five categories: Sustainable Communities, Cleaner Transportation, Greenhouse Gas Accounting, Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, and Water Efficiency and Sustainability.

The included resources are not intended to be comprehensive. They are indicative of the primary types of technical and financial support that are presently being offered by federal and state agencies, non-profit organizations, industry associations, and others.

Explore the Local Government Resources Toolkit using the menu to the right. While using the tools, the symbols below will help you indentify the types of resources available from the listed organization. These symbols are described below.
