I believe you may have misunderstood
what Mike Ritter said. HUD set up an
office to coordinate PATH program
activities but decided to bring
coordination of the program back into
the Office of Policy Development and
Research which has had authority for
program funding and direction all along.
The PATH program is alive and well.
PATH R&D; activities taking place under
the leadership of NIST, the National
Science Foundation, and HUD itself.
PATH field evaluation and demonstration
projects are taking place with builders
in locations throughout the country.
PATH outreach to the building industry
is taking place through the ToolBase
website (www.toolbase.org) and to
consumers through the PATH web site
which will be updated in the very near
future. Over 100 firms participated
over the past year in Technology
Roadmapping for the PATH program. Those
roadmaps are now available by calling
the ToolBase Hotline at 1-800-898-2842.
In short, the program is alive and
well. The closing of the separate
office in Washington has had a positive
effect in allowing HUD to better
coordinate program activities with the
