A

HUD is interested in ensuring long-term operating cost efficiency for the project and the low income tenants who will pay utility bills. HUD will not require major changes to systems if the PRA is awarded post construction start, but will require energy and water conservation standards to be followed in any part of the construction not complete or fully designed and built out. For existing projects HUD encourages future purchases of appliances to meet Energy Star standards.
