View this webinar to learn more about actions public housing authorities can take to promote environmental resiliency in their communities. We first heard from Natalie Hildt Treat, senior policy advisor for Building Electrification Initiative at Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM). Treat discussed NESCAUM’s efforts in the field of environmental resiliency, including her work helping states harness the power of clean, efficient electric building technologies to meet their climate and air quality goals. Next, we heard a case study about how the Municipal Housing Authority for the City of Yonkers (MHACY) has worked with their partner, Groundwork Hudson Valley, to incorporate environmental resiliency into their neighborhoods. Wilson Kimball, president and CEO of MHACY, and Brigitte Griswold, executive director of Groundwork Hudson Valley, shared how their partnership has leveraged data to understand the most vulnerable areas in their communities and address flooding and urban heat concerns.
