Section 4 Recipient Spotlight: Northern Pueblo Housing Authority (New Mexico)
Proven and effective, Section 4 – officially, the federal Section 4 Capacity Building for Community Development and Affordable Housing Program – strengthens local organizations across the country. Through its annual grants, the program helps organizations find new solutions to create affordable homes and healthy neighborhoods for families, seniors, veterans, people with disabilities and other low-income people.
Together with our local partners, Enterprise is multiplying the impact of local affordable housing development and helping families succeed. This case study documents how the NPHA used a Section 4 grant from Enterprise to help secure a $1 million Department of Energy (DOE) grant and matching funds for the development of a 1 megawatt solar array on six acres of tribal land. The project will produce 2.6 million kilowatt-hours of renewable energy annually — enough to offset the entire energy cost of the Pueblo’s 50 homes and 12 tribal buildings.
