RESTalk EP31: Affordable Energy Efficient Housing With Abe Kruger

Aug 14, 2019

For some, a broader definition of housing includes more than just rental cost.

It also includes energy, water, transportation, and healthcare – where in many cases the location has an impact on Indoor Air Quality.

Listen in as Abe Kruger, RESNET® Board member and Partner at SK Collaborative describes how half of his work now involves working with states to help determine ways that lead to improving this broader definition of affordable housing.

Many of the skills he learned and the knowledge he acquired in the course of his career as a certified RESNET HERS® Rater now come into play in the assessment of affordable housing.

Learn about the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) that has created 3 million affordable housing units across the country, and the impact made by the policy tool of Inclusionary Zoning (IZ) in market-rate housing.
