- Enterprise Green Communities provides a framework and resources for delivering unprecedented energy, environmental and health benefits to low- and moderate-income families in neighborhoods across the United States. The Enterprise Green Communities Criteria helps bring the health, economic and environmental benefits of sustainable construction to affordable housing. It has helped to create or rehabilitate more than 38,000 healthy homes. Enterprise Green Communities is also testing financing models to help fund the green retrofit of existing affordable homes.
