Abstract: The Department of Housing and Urban Development ("HUD") provides housing assistance for more than 3 million American families, 1.3 million living in housing directly owned by public housing authorities ("PHAs") and 2 million living in privately owned housing where the owner or tenant receives rental assistance from HUD. These families are the poorest of the poor, with average annual income of approximately $12,000. The families may live in a high-rise housing-authority owned tower in New York City, or a two family rental unit in Oakland, or a manufactured home in Maine. Yet no matter where they live, these families share in common not only their poverty, but the fact that the buildings they live in are too often poorly insulated and stocked with antiquated appliances that are in need of replacement and upgrading.
