Event Description

Rising water costs hit owners of affordable housing particularly hard. While owners of market-rate apartments can pass on higher rates to tenants, owners of affordable homes typically operate under strict rent caps.

These rising operational costs, driven in part by increases in water rates, could lead owners to defer maintenance to keep up with utility bills, or worse, lead to properties being financially unstable. In worst-case scenarios they could force buildings into foreclosures and residents out of their homes.

“Sustainable by Design” shows a path to overcoming these challenges. It recommends that multifamily housing providers, government agencies and philanthropic organizations invest in comprehensive water efficiency strategies. The result will be properties that are more financially stable and an increase in the supply of well-designed, affordable homes across the country.
