Green-homes initiative launched in Providence

Posted 12/19/11

PROVIDENCE – A program to provide 125 homes in the city’s Olneyville and Valley neighborhoods with free weatherization and health-and-safety assessments and upgrades was launched recently.

The program is funded with support from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Energy and national and local foundations. It replaces stand-alone programs with a comprehensive strategy to improve health, economic and social outcomes through an integrated housing-intervention framework.

“The city of Providence will conduct comprehensive health-and-safety audits and retrofits on 125 homes, and work with the families who live in the homes to make sure they save energy, save money and live healthier,” said Providence Mayor Angel Taveras. This program, he continued, “is a shining example of how we can come together to find innovative, new ways to address pressing housing and health concerns in our city and put our citizens back to work.” •
