“HUD’s Green Mortgage Insurance Premium Reduction Program is a phenomenal program with a great return on investment for developers but there are a lot of steps and requirements,” said Stephen Evanko, D3G’s Managing Director of Energy and Sustainability. “D3G can support lenders and developers through the process – from the initial Environmental Site Assessments, to the Architectural Reviews, to the energy and green building consulting and verification as well as with the ongoing monitoring.”
