Going Green: Intelligent Investments for Public Housing Conference (July 13th & 14th, 2011)

(Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers, 50 Park Plaza at Arlington Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02116)

In light of the nation’s debt crisis and resultant budget cuts, it is essential – now more than ever – to make intelligent investments in public housing. In July, HUD’s Office of Public and Indian Housing will bring together stakeholders from public housing agencies and affordable housing, green building, and energy efficiency industry groups to discuss strategies for integrating the concepts and practices of sustainability into the everyday management of public housing. Adopting best green practices means reducing the costs associated with utility use, all while improving the lives of the residents and surrounding community. Please join us to learn how your agency can benefit and how others already have!
