The first new initiative ensures that both savings and sustainability will continue to grow at the agency’s 45 housing communities. DCHA has produced “A Guide to Building Product Standards,” a reference guide for contractors regarding the construction and rehabilitation of its affordable housing units.
The second new initiative is a partnership with the University of the District of Columbia Cooperative Extension Program to provide recycling education for DCHA resident leaders The recycling program is being initiated authority-wide, and it will complement numerous other resident-driven environmental activities at public housing properties such as community gardens and composting programs.
