NIH Challenge Grant: Public-Private Partnership Strategy
    The Windows of Opportunity initiative seeks to build partnerships between window manufacturers, government-assisted rehab and weatherization grantees, researchers, mortgage underwriters, home inspectors and appraisers, utilities, and foundations in orger to achieve energy conservation and public health goals.  The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) provided substantial funding for a variety of housing and energy programs that could be used to support this effort.

    The near-term goal of the Windows of Opportunity initiative is to leverage and coordinate these ARRA funds to achieve multiple benefits from shared costs.  The long-term goal is to establish market-based systems driven by informed consumers that demand for more energy efficient and healthy housing.
