2018 NCHV Annual Conference: Registration Open, Exhibitor and Sponsor Opportunities, Call for Award Nominations

Registration Now Open for the 2018 NCHV Annual Conference!
May 30 - June 1 in Washington, D.C.
Our collective progress in ending homelessness among veterans in each of our communities across the United States has been remarkable over the past eight years. This year, as we convene together in our nation's capital, we will focus on continuing that progress. To do so, we must continue to identify proven strategies and policies to put into practice - always pushing ourselves to innovate and improve. We must also persevere to ensure that ending veteran homelessness remains the urgent national priority that it has been over these past years.
This year’s Conference will feature new learning formats and opportunities to network with colleagues from around the country as well as some of the popular favorites you've enjoyed in past years.
We've reserved a discounted room block at the Grand Hyatt for Conference attendees, but this room block sells out quickly every year. Be sure to make your reservations ASAP!
For more information, and all of the latest updates, visit the NCHV Annual Conference page.

Check out HUD’s New Multifamily Energy and Water Efficiency Resource Library

There are plenty of energy and water efficiency resources available to multifamily property owners, but locating the right one can be a challenge. The Better Buildings Challenge Multifamily team has responded by creating a new Multifamily Energy and Water Efficiency Resources page on the HUD Exchange. The resources are categorized by topic and cover everything from Retrofit Planning to Resident Engagement.
  • Don't know where to start? The Utility Benchmarking resources are designed to help multifamily property owners catalogue their building portfolios and analyze energy and water performance over time.
  • Wondering what to do with all that utility data? Check out the Retrofit Planning resources, which use energy and water consumption data to suggest targeted upgrades for the most inefficient properties.
  • In the dark about how to pay for building upgrades? Browse resources on Retrofit Finance, including an interactive 'Financing Navigator,' database of state-level energy efficiency incentives, and a financial decision tree.
  • Trying to choose the best products for your properties? View Building and Product Standards for links to ASHRAE, IECC, ENERGY STAR®, and WaterSense standards and products.
  • Want to ensure optimal performance of your building systems? The Operations and Maintenance resources help property owners and managers incorporate green and healthy practices into current operations and maintenance procedures.
  • Starting a new campaign to change resident behavior? Use Resident Engagement Toolkits to lower your utility costs by creating your own resident energy efficiency education and engagement plan.
