Green Affordable Housing and Community Development are among the leading building sectors to embrace sustainable construction and operational practices in part due to an awareness that we cannot afford not to incorporate green practices into these socially important projects.

This two-day summit, will be held at the Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, the world's largest conference and Expo dedicated to green building and will educate, advance, challenge, and inspire those who already are involved in providing green affordable housing and community development, as well as engage those who are just being introduced to this exciting and active development sector. Practitioners and thought leaders in this field will present on how to successfully plan, finance, develop, and manage these types of projects, as well as how this urgently important work addresses the needs of our stakeholders, environment, and the resiliency of our communities. The National Affordable Green Homes and Sustainable Communities Summit combines the work and annual seminars of the U.S. Green Building Council, Enterprise Community Partners and IPED, Inc. an affiliate of Nixon Peabody LLP.
