Sustainable Construction in Indian Country Projects to be Showcased at
HUD and Enterprise Reception

On May 2nd, twenty-one Native American communities will showcase their use of sustainable design and construction strategies at an event hosted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) Office of Policy Development and Research and Office of Native American Programs, and co-sponsored by Enterprise Community Partners.

The program will highlight the efforts tribes have undertaken to incorporate sustainable and resource-efficient elements in their affordable housing and community development efforts. Sustainability has – both recently and traditionally – played a key role in all aspects of Native American life. Multimedia presentations at this event will showcase how Native American communities are working together to learn about and incorporate today’s leading-edge sustainable construction strategies.

Tribal representatives from some of the showcased developments will be in attendance.

To register for the event please contact Julie Potter at 202-393-6400 or or visit
