The AHSC Program aims to improve mobility options and accessibility to affordable housing by funding connectivity and compact development projects. These multi-faceted projects facilitate the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by combining elements of affordable housing development, key transit and active transportation infrastructure, incentive programs, green infrastructure, and transportation-related amenities. The impact of these projects is on a neighborhood scale – to better connect homes, employment centers, and key destinations via low carbon transportation options (walking, biking and transit), resulting in fewer vehicle miles traveled (VMT). Projects will support public policy objectives through coordination including:
- Reducing air pollution
- Improving conditions in disadvantaged communities
- Supporting or improving public health
- Improving connectivity and accessibility to jobs, housing, and services
- Increasing options for mobility, including active transportation
- Protecting agricultural lands to support infill development
