  14. 14. Challenges Development process requires early, specific commitments before all funding is secured and construction bids are received. New technologies challenging to underwrite and budget against. More difficult to cover costs in non-tax credit financed developments. Certification standards evolving but challenging for affordable, multifamily development.
  15. 15. Challenges Challenging site configurations and locations limits ability to incorporate passive solar and cross-ventilation. New products can be difficult to source. Recycling and composting more complex in multifamily developments. Education of staff and residents a continuous process.
  16. 16. Opportunities Technology has arrived! Numerous funding, rebate and technical assistance programs available. Reduces ongoing operating costs. Greener = happier residents. Bay Area affordable housing architects and contractors knowledgeable and supportive of green building. Great PR and way to peak interest in affordable housing cause. Consistent with mission, the right thing to do.
