In 2011, EAH partners with the renowned Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for an important national experiment. At the EAH community Fountain West in Fresno, CA, scientists from the Laboratory monitor the rehabilitation of apartments, tracking changes in air quality and energy consumption. The results of this study are utilized by HUD.
2011 brings about resident and staff training though the support of Enterprise Community Partners and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC).
