Welcome, Affordable Housing Providers
Although affordable housing providers typically do not directly use innovative building technologies, the best way to control costs may be by employing innovative building technologies. Three ways in which homes can be made more affordable are: 1) by offering energy efficient homes, 2) by finding mortgage incentives for homes using energy-efficient systems and 3) by lowering insurance premiums in disaster areas for homes built with durable materials.
PATH wants to ensure these providers recognize the impact housing technologies can have on the cost and quality of housing. PATH therefore provides information about technological innovations, presented without jargon, tied to costs, and consistent with the ways housing institutional and financial partners do business. PATH is developing programs relevant to procedures (considering the quality and cost of new housing technologies) for home appraisal, insurance rates, and mortgages.
