At ACTION-Housing Green, residents can learn to improve their energy efficiency and create healthier homes while developers can leverage best practices for green home building and multi-family housing energy conservation.
Weatherization plays a big role in any attempt to conserve energy, so it’s no surprise that there are links to their Weatherization Assistance Program, which provides low income residents with energy audits, home weatherization, and safety checks.
ACTION Housing Green also offers tip guides and educational materials for extending the knowledge of residents about best green practices as applied to energy conservation. All of this information is available to anyone regardless of income level.
