LISC NYC and Two Shades of Green created a Green and Healthy Property Management Guide that provides detailed steps to bring green and healthy practices to existing affordable housing buildings. The Guide compliments hands-on technical assistance available for each affordable housing owner and property manager by the Two Shades of Green Team.

Printed in 2013, we hear an update might be coming soon. Many lessons will apply in the mean time! This resource looks terrific.

This guide for green and healthy property management policies and procedures, originally developed by
Boston LISC, was adapted by LISC New York City, The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
and The NYC Coalition for a Smoke-Free City with the assistance from Ellen Tohn of Tohn Environmental
Strategies. The guide is part of LISC New York City’s Green and Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative and Two
Shades of Green, a new partnership between LISC New York City, NYC Department of Health and Mental
Hygiene and the NYC Coalition for a Smoke-Free City. TSG was formed to bring cost-effective green and
healthy practices to existing affordable housing buildings.

The original guide was written by Ellen Tohn of Tohn Environmental Strategies in collaboration with Kristin
Blum and Elizabeth Glynn of Boston LISC, as part of the CDC Green Retrofit Initiative. The work that
provided the basis for this publication was supported by funding under a U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development award. The substance and findings of the work are dedicated to the public. The author
and publisher are solely responsible for the accuracy of the statements and interpretations contained in this
publication. Such interpretations do not necessarily reflect the views of the Government.

LISC New York City greatly appreciates the organizations whose generous support made our guide
possible: Con Edison and Citi Foundation.

LISC New York City is extremely grateful for the partnerships that made this guide possible. Specifically, LISC New York City would like to thank Deborah Nagin, Sean Robin and Sarah Wolf at NYC DOHMH, Rachelle Rochelle at NYC Coalition for a Smoke-Free City and Ellen Tohn of Tohn Environmental Strategies.
