Making Multifamily Homes Healthy and Affordable Through Energy and Water Efficiency

Fact Sheet
October 03, 2018

Millions of low-income families across the country live in affordable rental homes, but many apartments are in need of repair and come with higher energy bills, resulting in residents and owners paying more to maintain comfortable living conditions that would cost a fraction of the cost in newer, weatherized, water and energy efficient homes. Increasing the energy and water efficiency of affordable rental-housing saves resources, improves residents’ health and comfort and keeps housing costs reasonable. Energy Efficiency For All (EEFA) is a multi-state initiative that works to make multifamily housing healthy and affordable through energy and water efficiency.
