Building Green, Saving Green
Low-income households spend disproportionately more on their energy and water bills than moderate income households often putting them in the untenable position of having to chose between paying the rent and keeping the lights on. Providing opportunities to live in energy efficient, water conserving, healthy housing can significantly ease the financial burdens on families and individuals while reducing carbon emissions and creating jobs. Enterprise has been working to make green and affordable housing one and the same through their nationally recognized Green Communities Initiative. In this presentation, Enterprise's Vice President of Green Initiatives Dana Bourland will share the impact their work is having on the people they serve and the innovative tools such as the Enterprise Green Communities Offset Fund they have created to make it happen.
