A push by the Obama administration to promote "location- and energy-efficient" affordable housing got a boost this week with the launch of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities.

The office will distribute two-thirds of the $150 million in grant money Congress allocated in the 2010 budget for the Obama administration's interagency Partnership for Sustainable Communities, HUD said.
