Comprehensive Housing Activities for Neighborhood Growth & Enrichment (CHANGE)

CHANGE logo
Launched in 2006, the Sustainable Dubuque initiative is a holistic approach to sustainability that addresses ecological/environmental integrity, economic prosperity, and social/cultural vibrancy. By addressing these three parts of our sustainability model we are creating a community that is viable, livable, and equitable. CHANGE is a campaign of neighborhood revitalization and an extension of sustainability to specifically address marginal properties, affordable housing, and homeownership.
