PCHA Receives Awards at Statewide Housing Conference

The Florida Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (FAHRO) recently awarded the PCHA with a 2010 Best Practices Award for Implementing Green Initiatives. Since 2009 when PCHA’s Board of Commissioners committed to becoming more environmentally conscious by incorporating “Implementing Green Initiatives” as part of the agency’s 5-year Strategic Plan, the PCHA has been actively seeking ways to implement energy efficiency standards and other “green” efforts to reduce the agency’s environmental footprint.
