Green Preservation

Preserving affordable housing is inherently resource efficient the greenest building is the one that already exists. By retrofitting existing affordable housing to increase energy efficiency, green jobs are created, low-income residents pay less in utilities, operating costs are lowered, and healthier homes are created. In addition, preserving and greening transit-connected affordable housing has the dual benefits of reducing energy consumed through transportation and reducing the environmental impact of the housing stock.
