Neighborhoods in the certification program earn credits for participation and for achieving project goals.

In 2013, the City of Lakewood was approached by several regional sustainability organizations and nearby communities who expressed interested in the program. As a result the City of Lakewood developed the Sustainable Neighborhood Network as a vehicle to share the program with interested communities.
