About Green Communities

IACT launched the Green Communities Initiative in 2008 for the collective purposes of improving awareness about green options and how to implement them, promoting municipal efforts through a peer recognition/awards program, and awarding the most aggressive green programs

Complete Your Survey for a Chance to Become the 2015 Green Community of the Year!

We have extended the deadline for participation in the 2015 IACT Green Communities program.  While the questionnaire is extensive, the Green Community designation is fantastic recognition for the many Hoosier communities who are working hard to operate using more sustainable, environmentally friendly practices.    

Please submit your survey by Monday, July 13th to be considered as a 2015 IACT Green Community or Green Community of the Year!

Cities and Towns interested in receiving the Green Community designation and considered for the Green Community of the Year Awards must complete a 51-question survey in the areas of purchasing, operations, measuring success, and sample projects. 

Green Communities and Award winners are recognized at IACT's Annual Conference and Exhibition.
