The Better Buildings Challenge (BBC)

Thursday, February 11, 2016

The following is a repost of information distributed by HUD.  It is posted here in the event you are not on the HUD RHIIP listserv. CLICK HERE to view the attachment that had been distributed with the announcement.

As part of the President’s Climate Action Plan, announced in 2013, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) partnered to expand the Better Buildings Challenge (BBC) to the multifamily residential sector. The Better Buildings Challenge is a voluntary leadership initiative that asks building owners and managers to make a public commitment to energy efficiency with the goals of mitigating climate change and improving financial stability in the market-rate and affordable multifamily housing stocks.

We are seeking new partners for 2016 from amongst the nation’s multifamily housing providers, and we will be holding open briefing sessions throughout the month of February to provide information on the benefits of joining this important initiative.  Being a BBC Partner provides building owners with a number of great opportunities for public recognition.  New partners that make a pledge by March 1 will:

  1. Be announced at the BBC Summit in DC on May 9-11, 2016
  2. Receive a letter of support from the Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development
  3. Be eligible for several financial and policy incentives made available by the Office of Multifamily Housing

Please join us at one of the open briefing sessions described below to learn more about these and other benefits of becoming a BBC Partner.  Additionally, we will discuss our complementary initiatives, the Renew300 renewable energy pledge and the BBC Water pledge.  If you cannot attend any of the briefing sessions or have additional questions, please contact julia.b.hustwit@hud.gov or check out the BBC webpages here (HUD) and here (DOE).
