Virginia Ranks 4th in Top 10 States for LEED


VHDA wants to get the word out about Virginia being one of the Top 10 states for LEED in 2014! We’re proud to promote LEED and make sustainability a priority though our Low-Income Housing Tax Credit funding and supporting other affordable housing initiatives, such as EarthCraft Virginia, which also made the Top 10 list in 2013.

In 2014, Virginia’s developers increased the amount of LEED-certified space to 2.33 square feet per resident. That adds up to over 18 million square feet of LEED-certified space in 150 developments. VHDA promotes LEED-certified spaces because they use less energy and water resources. The result saves money and makes affordable housing even more affordable — benefitting families, businesses and taxpayers.

LEED, the world’s most widely used and recognized green building rating system, was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
