Green Communities Initiative
A partnership of the Enterprise Foundation and the Natural Resources Defense Council, this five-year, $550 million initiative seeks to build more than 8,500 homes across the United States that provide significant health, economic, and environmental benefits to low-income families and communities. The initiative will offer financing, grants, and technical assistance to developers to build affordable housing that promotes health, conserves energy and natural resources, and provides easy access to jobs, schools, and services. Grants will help cover the costs of planning and implementing green components of affordable housing projects, as well as tracking their costs and benefits. Public housing authorities and tribally designated housing entities are eligible to apply. For-profit entities may participate though joint ventures with qualified organizations. Letters of inquiry may be submitted online.
