Subject: [GreenYes] Affordable Housing

Hello All -
 
Does anyone know of a city that operates a program/facility that accepts construction/building material and resells it or donates it for the purposes affordable housing? 
 
 I understand that Habitat for Humanity runs "Re-Stores" that accept reusable household materials and sells them, however, we are in an area that doesn't have a low cost builder (ala H4H) in it. 
 
The purpose of establishing a program like this would be twofold, 1) help facilitate affordable housing projects 2) divert C&D material that would otherwise goto a landfill.
 
If anyone would have any contacts in cities that participate in a program like this, please let me know.
 
Thanks,
 
John Buri
