HUD-DOE Announce Collaborative Efforts to Weatherize More Homes

Earlier today, the White House released this press release announcing a new development in achieving greater energy efficiency in homes.

Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Donovan and Secretary of Energy Chu signed this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to better coordinate weatherization efforts in both single-family and multifamily homes using funding allocated in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).

Among its many provisions, ARRA includes $5 billion in funding for the Weatherization Assistance Program that will help low and moderate-income families make energy efficiency improvements to their home.
