Miller oversees the expansion of the Better Buildings Challenge to the multifamily sector, in partnership with DOE, which supports energy efficiency across market-rate and affordable housing. She also serves as HUD’s lead on the federal renewable energy target to triple the amount of on-site installed renewable energy capacity across the federally assisted housing stock by 2020. Previously, Miller managed the Green Communities initiative at Enterprise Community Partners. Her work focused on leveraging private and public investment in green affordable housing development and sustainable building practices across the country.
