Georgia Drawdown Initiative
In partnership with the Georgia Hispanic Construction Association, the Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance, and with guidance from Georgia State Representative Marvin Lim, the Gwinnett Housing Corporation is working towards the development of a comprehensive federal investment and workforce development plan to benefit disadvantaged communities in one of the most diverse and under-resourced parts of Gwinnett County. These activities are funded through the Georgia Drawdown Climate Solutions and Equity Grant.
As a part of this process, we are actively seeking feedback from businesses and contractors who are interested in receiving training and other opportunities to supply services in the areas of weatherization improvements and water efficiency. Your feedback on our weatherization and energy efficiency survey will provide valuable insight that will be used as part of the plan's development.
