About the Sustainable and Healthy Communities Research Program

What We Do

How do we meet today’s needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs in ways that are economically viable, beneficial to human health and well-being, and socially just? EPA’s Sustainable and Healthy research program is working to provide the knowledge, data, and tools needed to answer those questions while supporting local communities seeking to become more sustainable.
