Who We Are

Homes Across America is a program of Peaks to Prairies Pollution Prevention Information Center. Peaks to Prairies is one of eight EPA-funded centers, collectively known as P2Rx.org and devoted to providing high-quality information to businesses interested in adopting pollution prevention practices.

Why do we think residential construction is unique from commercial building construction?

  • Residential construction budgets are small
  • Homes are designed as living spaces for people
  • House systems are operated by untrained individuals
  • Codes and requirements vary widely depending on locale
  • Construction is often based on experience with less rigid plan
  • Market is less stable; homes are often built on speculation
  • Homeowner preference or builder initiative drives innovation

Peaks to Prairies is a proud member of P2Rx, the national network of regional P2 information centers - http://www.p2rx.org
