Better Built Program

The Better Built program incorporates the best practices adopted by Habitat’s former network, the Green Team. The principles of the Better Built Program remain the same, highlighting energy-efficient, healthy and environmentally-friendly building processes.

The Better Built program provides contacts, materials and resources for local Habitat affiliates who seek help in building more sustainable houses. Once staff are contacted by an affiliate, we tailor assistance to the specific climate in which an affiliate builds. The program promotes building strategies that provide healthy indoor air quality, durability and energy efficiency for homeowners. In addition, we assist interested affiliates in exploring other practical and affordable green building options.

If you would like to assist a local affiliate that is interested in this process, please contact them directly to find out how you may help.
