Praise for Housing:
"I first learned of Rick's work with United Way's green and high-performance construction, energy retrofits, and workforce development training programs in 2015 when I spoke with him regarding a home that United Way has certified to the U.S. Department of Energy's Zero Energy Ready Home criteria. That was nominated for and won a DOE Housing Innovation Awards in 2015, 16, 17, 18, and 19. United Way has also been selected by the judges as the Grand Award winner in the affordable housing category in each of those years as well, an accomplishment unequaled by any other affordable builder and unique among market-rate builders as well."

What is a Zero Energy Ready Home?
