NEWHAB (The Network for Energy, Water, and Health in Affordable Buildings) is the national social impact and anti-racist learning network of the Energy Efficiency for All project. Approximately 300 members representing the four corners of the United States, and from diverse sectors and backgrounds, share an interest in learning from each other and coming together to wrestle with the complex problems that cannot be solved alone. Members include energy efficiency program implementers, affordable housing owners and developers, community organizers, environmental justice advocates, public agency officials, healthy home implementers, contractors, residents and resident advocates, utilities, and lenders and funders. NEWHAB focuses on root causes and intentional, leveraged action aimed at increasing the health of overlapping systems that create housing and energy instability for people of color and underserved communities while hosting regular engagement opportunities, including training and learning exchanges and collaborative problem-solving sessions, by and for members.

NEWHAB is open to all individuals working collectively toward making affordable multi-family homes energy and water efficient and is dedicated to a future where everyone has a good home that is permanently affordable, protects health, and contributes to climate and community resilience.
