The practice of • increasing the efficiency with which buildings and their sites use energy. construction. through better siting.

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

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

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

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 .

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

Construction Waste Management .

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

• Green Building has become a viable economic practice with multiple examples in affordable housing .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.

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 .
