Green Rehab 101 Guidance For Turning Your Residential Rehab Program Green
When first starting to implement green measures in your residential rehab program, there are 3 HUD Codes you can use: 1.14A – Rehabilitation (Single Unit) 2.14B – Rehabilitation (Multi Unit) 3.14F – Energy Efficiency Improvements CDBG Green Rehab 101: HUD Codes
HUD Codes 14A & 14B (Single- and Multi-Unit) are the most frequently used HUD Codes and allow for energy and water conservation measures as well as energy audits for program participants DID YOU KNOW? Many agencies currently operate a 14A rehab program but do not implement green measures CDBG Green Rehab 101: HUD Codes
HUD Code 14F (Energy Efficiency Improvements) can be used only when it is clear that the activity being funded is a rehabilitation program for the sole purpose of promoting energy efficiency. Note that residential structure size is not a determining factor for this HUD Code Example: weatherization programs CDBG Green Rehab 101: HUD Codes
