Our hearts are heavy for all those impacted by Hurricane Laura.  Laura was one of the strongest hurricanes ever to make landfall in Louisiana. The storm was deadly and damaging. Parts of Southwest Louisiana will be without power for weeks, if not months. We stand with Southwest Louisiana.

The Cost of Being Poor
Ongoing pandemic, economic collapse, lifting of eviction and utility shutoff moratoriums, ending of federal unemployment assistance, Black Lives Matter - my mind is spinning! There are literally fires to put out everywhere. But, simply putting them out is not going to solve the systematic problems that caused them. We need to dig deep into the unjust policies that got us here.
How does housing relate to risk for COVID-19?

COVID-19 will have severe short- and long-term impacts on the well-being of under-resourced communities. The crisis is not just a health crisis- it is a housing crisis, an energy crisis, a poverty crisis, and an economic crisis.

Energy Efficiency for All is committed to ensuring that policies and practices are in place to support the energy and housing needs of marginalized communities who were already struggling before this crisis hit. We hope the information provided here will be a useful resource to EEFA partners and others who are working towards an equitable response to COVID-19.
