Technical Assistance Grants for Comprehensive Energy Assessments
A Deep Energy Retrofit (DER) is a set of building improvements that cuts the energy use in the building by at least 50 percent. The work often includes:
- better insulation
- air sealing
- new appliances, and
- even the installation of rooftop solar panels.
Through the Large Building Green Energy Retrofits Program, the Mayor’s Office of Housing (MOH) is offering assistance to save energy in large, affordable multifamily housing. This includes grants of up to $10,000 for technical assistance grants to offset the cost of evaluating the current energy use of a building and determining what it will take to complete a DER. Technical Assistance grant applications are due by October 31, 2023.
The owners of eligible large, affordable multifamily housing buildings can follow the steps outlined below to apply for a technical assistance grant.
