The impacts of our changing climate worsen the affordable housing crisis, putting millions of households at risk of displacement.
We have heard from owners and operators that they want to make their properties more resilient to these environmental risks but are unsure what strategies could be both effective and affordable. The resilience academies will continue in several other regions throughout the Country.
Enter Our Newest Initiative: Enterprise Climate Resilience Academies
These regional, cohort-based learning opportunities are for affordable housing owners, operators and developers to engage with one another, content experts and local stakeholders to address the unique hazards of their region.
Together, participants will identify critical vulnerabilities, offer solutions and technical assistance to improve portfolio resilience to future threats and incorporate community resilience strategies.
Focus areas will all be tailored to regional needs, and will include:
- Assessing portfolio risk.
- Building and retrofitting new and existing housing.
- Understanding funding and financing programs and how to access them.
- Incorporating community engagement and resilience strategies.
