  • A recipient of the EPA’s Energy Star Award for Excellence, the Louisville effort focused on a new HOPE VI mixed-income development called Liberty Green.  The development consists of 689 new homes which all received Energy Star labels.  All units will be 30% more efficient than the building code requirements, and the improvements include higher efficiency heating and cooling systems as well as enhanced ductwork. 
  • In addition, the Louisville Metro Housing Authority received grant funding to support ACTIVE Louisville within the community where Liberty Green was under development.  Projects included an inter-generational fitness program, bicycle recycling and a community clean up.
