Many different programs funded by government, utilities, and charities exist to provide low-income households services to improve the health, safety, and energy efficiency of their homes. Service delivery is usually fragmented, leading to high transactions costs for participants, inefficient service delivery and greater total program costs. However, some state and local governments have implemented policies to facilitate integration of these interventions through case management and one-stop shopping service delivery. It is important to assess these initiatives to understand the challenges that are faced, how these challenges have been overcome, and the relative impacts of various models. Such analysis can only be accomplished if policymakers build up-front systems to track energy savings and additional participant impacts. Experts from the evaluation and national advocacy community will discuss best practices in program design, implementation, and performance measurement for coordinated energy efficiency and healthy homes delivery models.
