The latest round of AHSC awards marks an important milestone for the program - more than $1 billion invested in 100 AHSC developments. It also reveals important trends: between Rounds 3 and 4, the median estimated greenhouse gas emission reduction increased by 43% - from 13,607 to 19,470 metric tons of CO2 (see Table 1) and
each dollar of AHSC funds helped reduce 10% more GHGs than in Round 3. These improvements are largely due to Round 4's strong affordable housing components and awardees incorporating transportation infrastructure and amenities with more GHG reduction potential than in previous rounds.
