Sustainable Connections is an organization which partners with local businesses and other organizations to promote and act upon creative solutions for creating healthy communities. They focus on areas of innovation such as food systems, renewable energy, the built environment, and more (Sustainable Connections, 2022a). The Whatcom Housing Alliance, a partner organization to Sustainable connections, is an alliance of organizations committed to creating equitable, affordable, and healthy communities with a greater variety of housing options (Whatcom Housing Alliance, 2020). The Green Building and Smart Growth Program is a collaboration involving both organizations, and others, which seeks to promote some of the goals of both partners while supporting local businesses with similar goals. The program defines smart growth as development which encourages mixed uses, infill development, and community involvement while supporting variety in housing and transportation forms (Sustainable Connections, 2022b)
