What is Green/Sustainable Development?

The practice of increasing the efficiency with which buildings and their sites use energy, water and materials, and reducing building impacts on human health and the environment, through better siting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal the complete building lifecycle.

Why Green?
National (HUD) Perspective
No Requirement for Green but it does relate to HUDs Policy Priorities Builds on HUDs 21-Point Energy Action Plan Green/Sustainable Building is part of the future of affordable housing.

The National Context

Increasing energy costs drive up development and operating costs in housing. Much of U.S. housing stock contains environmental hazards. Current development patterns and practices are environmentally unfriendly or wasteful.

Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) $95,000 to implement Green Building Tribal Assessments and Workshop Deputy Assistant Secretary Rodger Boyd NWONAP Administrator Ken Bowring

Model Approach
HUD leadership team Assessment of existing sustainable or green outlines project building practice opportunities and constraints Selection of model programs and ONAP funds Green outcomes Building pilot program providing technical Conference to support and assistance disseminate information

Interviews with Tribal Leaders in the Pacific North West to identify potential best practices. Site visits to document outcomes and identify further challenges and opportunities

Green Building Solution Healthier Homes

Site planning that supports walking and transit Mold resistant building envelope and building materials Healthy Materials low voc paints

Problem: Development Patterns

Current development patterns and practices are environmentally unfriendly or wasteful.

Green Building Solution Minimize Environmental Impact

Site planning for resource preservation (trees, drainage, light) Efficient water use Recycled and recyclable building materials Construction waste management

Building Materials

Construction Waste Management

Methods for Green Building

Use of sustainable building materials that emit fewer health-endangering toxins, such as carpets, paints, and mold-resistant materials. Use of water- and energy-conserving fixtures and appliances. Site selection that integrates into the natural environment and promotes healthy living. Owner and resident training and education.

Lessons Learned
Green Building practices can be applied at all stages of the development process Green Building Practices bring more funding partners and equity to the housing market. Green Building has become a viable economic practice with multiple examples in affordable housing

Next Steps/Call to Action

Disseminate best practices among ONAP regions by replicating the conference model Incorporate green building practices into Healthy Homes training Promote Interagency coordination Implement green building practices in appropriate HUD funded programs and projects
