NEWHAB brings together people from many sectors who care about ensuring healthy, affordable, and sustainable housing for all.
NEWHAB is the national social impact and learning network of the Energy Efficiency for All project open to all individuals working collectively toward making affordable multifamily homes energy and water efficient.
We are approximately 300 individuals from diverse sectors and backgrounds interested in learning from each other and coming together to wrestle with the complex problems that cannot be solved alone. Our members include energy efficiency program implementers, affordable housing owners and developers, community organizers, environmental justice advocates, public agency officials, healthy home implementers, contractors, residents and resident advocates, utilities, lenders and funders. Our members represent the four corners of the US and everywhere in between.
The key to changing is getting a small set of the right people involved at the right places. What’s missing is not the critical mass. The missing ingredient is the critical yeast” (John Paul Lederach). NEWHAB contains the critical yeast.
