Tackle Energy Efficiency and Indoor Air Quality Together: Best Practices in Multifamily Housing Upgrades Webinar

October 19, 2017 - 1:00 PM EDT

Interested in taking a proactive approach to protecting indoor air quality (IAQ) while boosting energy efficiency in your multifamily building? This webinar will take you through the steps of getting started. You’ll learn how to integrate energy management activities (including a retrofit or other building upgrade project) and IAQ protection activities using the recommendations in EPA’s Energy Savings Plus Health: Indoor Air Quality Guidelines for Multifamily Building Upgrades. Use of these guidelines can lead to substantial improvements in IAQ and cost savings. To learn more about protecting IAQ in your home please visit the EPA’s Indoor Environments Division website on remodeling and energy upgrades here.
By attending this webinar, participants will:
  • Learn how to integrate IAQ protection activities into energy efficiency retrofit projects.
     
  • Learn how to use EPA’s Multifamily Checklist Generator Tool, a custom verification checklist spreadsheet that accompanies the Indoor Air Quality Guidelines.
     
  • Hear case studies on the City of Mankato Economic Development Authority and the Hempstead Housing Authority’s multifamily building retrofits to learn best practices and real world application of content found in the guidelines.

HOW does Medicaid Impact Veterans Experiencing Homelessness?
8c143745-a9c3-41fc-8bfe-f199638ae6a7.png
Although many veterans have healthcare access through the VA, Medicaid is particularly important for those veterans experiencing homelessness. A new issue brief from the Kaiser Family Foundation explores Medicaid’s role for this population, the benefits it has experienced during Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act, and the potential impact to homeless veterans if Medicaid is restructured.
