Green living is an MHP core value.
Green Education for Youth
MHP has been offering Green Clubs for young people for many years.

MHP has won recognition as a NeighborWorks Green Organization by demonstrating a comprehensive commitment to sustainable operations. To achieve this designation, MHP demonstrated adherence to green business practices, showing a commitment to creating healthier, energy-efficient environments for homeowners, renters, community residents and staff. MHP focuses its real estate development activity on meeting Enterprise Green Communities standards through energy-efficient upgrades and use of green building products and processes throughout its multi-family portfolio.

MHP has been recognized by the National Association of Counties (NACo) for our work helping residents improve their homes’ efficiency and reduce their energy costs.
