Hey folks, Thought this might interest you. Laura E. Fitch, AIA Principal Architect Kraus-Fitch Architects, Inc. 110 Pulpit Hill Road Amherst, MA 01002 ********************* Green Communities Initiative Announces Grant Guidelines Deadline: Rolling The Green Communities Initiative is a five-year, $550 million initiative to build more than 8,500 homes across the United States that provide significant health, economic, and environmental benefits to low-income fami- lies and communities. The effort is a partnership of the Enterprise Foundation and the Natural Resources Defense Council, in collaboration with the American Institute of Architects, the American Planning Association, and leading corporate, financial, and philanthropic organizations. The initiative will offer financing, grants, and technical assistance to developers to build affordable housing that promotes health, conserves energy and natural resources, and provides easy access to jobs, schools, and services. Grants will help cover the costs of planning and imple- menting green components of affordable housing projects, as well as tracking their costs and benefits. A minimum of $1 million in grant funds is available to participants. Individual grants are expected to range between $15,000 and $50,000. The grant competition is open to 501(c)(3) nonprofit, public housing authorities and tribally designated housing entities. For-profit entities may participate though joint ventures with qualified organizations. For more information, grant and application guidelines, and an FAQ, see the Enterprise Foundation Web site.
