  1. The HUD study regarding needed investments to improve public housing brings up a good point. While the repairs and renovations that are needed at these locations may seem very high, this may actually be a great opportunity. If these public housing buildings are upgraded using energy and water efficient measures, they could in fact help to reduce utility costs for the buildings which in turn will offset the costs of the repairs.
