Storms, heat waves and wildfires have become more frequent and intense, but most affordable homes weren’t built to withstand these threats. The cost of recovery grows as the U.S. loses. $10+ billion per year in damages. And people of color and families with less wealth are disproportionately affected – they are more likely to become homeless after disaster strikes.

We're a national leader in resilience and green building, and our work is more urgent than ever. Fifteen years after launching the first green building standard for the affordable housing industry, Enterprise is increasing its commitment and leading the field in responding to climate change:
