This initiative is a voluntary program to identify, support, and recognize implementation of sustainable best practices. The initiative aims to identify best practices for cities, provide benchmarks and indicators to assess achievement, point cities toward tools and sources of assistance, and recognize the efforts of local governments.

U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance
Cooperative purchasing is one of the easiest ways cities can stretch each purchasing dollar. By pooling the collective purchasing power of local governments across the United States, U.S. Communities can procure goods and services at tremendously discounted prices. Participation is free.
