Climate Risk Reduction

The impacts of our changing climate worsen the affordable housing crisis, putting millions of households at risk of displacement. Enterprise has heard from developers, owners and operators of affordable housing that there is a need to make properties more resilient to reduce displacement of residents, damage to property, business interruptions and other harmful impacts, but are unsure what strategies could be both effective and affordable. 

Below are the strategies Enterprise's recommends to help developers, owners and operators identify and plan for climate risks.
