Working with Enterprise, San Francisco tapped into local resources to model a revitalization program on the national HOPE VI program. The locally funded program, HOPE SF, focused on preventing displacement and incorporating green building. It will be a LEED ND pilot project, and will also apply the Green Communities criteria developed by the national housing syndicator, Enterprise. The focus will be on energy efficiency, renewable energy and water conservation as well as creating a healthy environment.
