The Home Depot Foundation is giving Habitat for Humanity International a walloping $30 million for a national green-building program called Partners in Sustainable Building. The program, which aims to make at least 5,000 Habitat homes more energy efficient, will provide energy-efficient and sustainable building resources and funding for 17 percent of all single- and multi-family homes that Habitat builds in the next five years.
While Home Depot has used individual store donations and new-home builds to support Habitat, Partners in Sustainable Building is the first formal partnership between the two. ::New Mexico Business Weekly
