Green Communities is a five-year, $555 million fund to build more than 8,500 homes across the country that provide significant health, economic and environmental benefits to low-income families and communities.

 

 


 

 

This groundbreaking effort is a partnership of The Enterprise Foundation and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), along with the American Institute of Architects, the American Planning Association and leading corporate, financial and philanthropic organizations. Over time, Green Communities will transform the way Americans think about, locate, design and build affordable homes.  Green Communities will provide expert training and technical assistance to help housing developers meet Green Communities criteria. The initiative also will encourage government agencies at the local, state and federal level to “green” their affordable housing programs.

Come find out about:

  • More than $2.5 million in discounted green loans to developers of affordable residential or supportive housing

  • $230,000 in grants to help cover costs associated with building green

  • Technical assistance at no cost through the Florida Solar Energy Center to help utilize the most cost-effective green strategies and identify local design professionals with green-building expertise.

  • Competitively priced equity through the Low-income Housing Tax Credit.

 


Sustainability: The Next Industrial Revolution

Thursday, October 13, 2005
3:30 pm - 5 pm
MDC Wolfson, Room 7128

Facilitated by Chris Migliaccio

What is meant by Sustainability? How can we design and implement a strategy of coexistence that supports human endeavor and also replenishes, restores and nourishes the planet for generations to come?

Chris Migliaccio will present the fundamentals of sustainability as an introduction to viewing The Next Industrial Revolution, a documentary that chronicles the story of architect Bill McDonough and chemist Michael Braungart in their attempt to simultaneously build businesses that enhance profitability while working with, and in support of, natural Earth systems and communities. Discussion follows film.
