Nearly 100 Clean Cities coalitions work to reduce petroleum use in communities across the country. Led by Clean Cities coordinators, coalitions comprise businesses, fuel providers, vehicle fleets, state and local government agencies, and community organizations. These stakeholders come together to share information and resources, educate the public, help craft public policy, and collaborate on projects that reduce petroleum use.

Making an Impact

More than 258 million people (82% of the total U.S. population) live inside the boundaries of Clean Cities coalitions. Coalitions coordinate the work of almost 14,000 stakeholders nationwide.

Clean Cities coalitions make an impact in their communities every day. Their activities stimulate local economies, facilitate the adoption of new transportation technologies, and make communities cleaner, healthier places to live.

"Clean Cities has been a pleasure to work with because of the educational value it brings to fleets, whether in municipal or private. They give you knowledge and direction for your individual fleet and location for all the different alternative fuels and propulsion for vehicles and equipment. Helping get grant money for your individual project, the director of each collation is very knowledgeable about what is going on in your area and willing to help."
