Rebuilding Sustainable Communities in the Southwest

Commitment by

Community Rebuilds

In 2014, Community Rebuilds, and their partners including U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development, GRID Alternatives, and Esri, Inc. committed to build 16 affordable, super green housing units in poverty stricken areas on the Navajo and Hopi Reservations of the Southwestern United States within 2 years. Community Rebuilds will train 56 young indigenous professionals in construction methods by combining the Community Rebuilds Student Education model with the USDA RD Mutual Self Help model, which aims to include future homeowners during the construction process to enable greater stewardship of the residential dwelling and more sustainable community integration.
