Energy efficiency is essential to help the Department achieve its goals, including expanding affordable housing, increasing homeownership, and creating jobs and economic opportunity. This Energy Desk Book spotlights the heavy burden utility costs can place on affordable housing and economic development. It reviews the important energy mandates for HUD programs and discusses the resources available to reduce these costs for American families and communities. By improving energy efficiency, HUD can help families save money they otherwise would need to spend on energy-freeing up precious dollars for food, shelter, and other necessities. Lower utility costs also can help communities by helping business and industry and contributing to economic growth.

The Energy Desk Book is a useful tool that can help HUD staff identify opportunities to integrate PATH into HUD programs-and help more Americans realize the dream of affordable housing.
