The following resource list provides links to organizations and websites that provide valuable information on green affordable housing. Many of these resources are focused on multi-family low-income housing developments, but some also apply to single-family affordable homes.
A few of Global Green’s projects and resources:
- Holy Cross project, New Orleans
- Blueprint for Greening Affordable Housing (2nd Edition), edited by Global Green USA (Island Press, 2007) *
- Solar Affordable Housing Assessment Calculator (for California LIHTC developments)
Energy Efficient Rehab Advisor (HUD / Energy Star)
Green Affordable Housing Coalition (Build It Green, CA)
U.S. Interagency Partnership for Sustainable Communities (HUD/EPA/DOT)
* = I have worked on writing projects for the organizations that are marked with an asterisk. I also used to work for an architecture firm that specializes in designing green affordable housing projects in the Boston metropolitan area: Davis Square Architects.
If you know of other relevant resources, please mention them in the Comments below. Thanks!
