The EPC Clearinghouse is a searchable, annotated database of more than 130 online resources for Healthy Aging, Healthy Communities, Built Environment, and Mobility. It includes tools, best practices, case studies, and strategies to support local efforts in environmental and policy change for healthy aging.

The Clearinghouse was developed by the CDC-Healthy Aging Research Network (HAN) and funded by the CDC Healthy Aging Program, the CDC Healthy Communities Program, and the University of Washington Health Promotion Research Center (HPRC).

Involved in this effort was Basia Belza (PI, UW School of Nursing), Becky Hunter (co-PI, University of North Carolina), the UW School of Nursing Technology Innovations in Education and Research (TIER), HPRC staff, members of the Resource Guidance Group, and CDC HAN members.
