NH&RA COVID-19 Member Town Hall: Designing Healthy & Green Affordable Housing

2020 has been a year of extremes and superlatives and will undoubtedly reshape how we design and develop affordable housing for years to come. By its nature, affordable housing and the built environment is designed to last for generations so the work we do today echoes, if not for eternity, then certainly for generations.

After enduring a season of pandemic, extreme weather events driven by natural disaster and economic dislocation on a scale not seen since the Great Depression it is worthwhile to pause and reflect on how we might build differently in the future, to insulate our communities and residents from future adverse events. This year should prove out to be a pivot point on how we think about sustainability, resilience and healthy design in the built environment.

Join NH&RA for our next COVID-19 Member Town Hall on October 8 at 3pm ET for an informative roundtable discussion with some of the leading minds in green, sustainable and healthy building design. Join our expert panelists for innovative approaches and practical tips that you can apply to your next affordable housing project that will result a more resilient, efficient and healthier community.
