CHPC launched the GREEN program in response to the systematic exclusion of assisted low income rental properties from federal, state, and investor-owned utility funded weatherization and energy retrofit programs. This presents numerous programmatic and technical barriers that ultimately prevent owners of assisted rental housing from leveraging funds to make much-needed capital repairs. To address these critical issues, CHPC convened The Green Rental home Efficiency Network (GREEN). GREEN is a statewide coalition of mission driven and service organizations across California to work collaboratively for the inclusion of multifamily rental housing as a priority in Federal and State funded energy efficiency programs. GREEN also works to improve the regulatory and administrative provisions to enable a higher rate of green retrofits to public and privately owned assisted housing in California. Learn more »
