Commercial PACE for Affordable Multifamily Housing

C-PACE is a financing structure that enables owners of commercial, industrial and multifamily residential properties to obtain affordable, long-term funds for 100% of the cost of energy and water efficiency retrofits (as well as for distributed generation investments). 


Last year, EEFA developed a story toolkit to help energy efficiency advocates to tell meaningful stories. The toolkit includes an interview guide, helpful suggestions for equipment, and a story report form to help us collect stories. The toolkit is included below.


Preceding the passage of the new tax bill, EEFA states sent sign on letters explaining the importance of federal programs like the Housing Credit, Section 8 project-based rental assistance, Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, Private Activity Tax Exempt Bonds and the Weatherization Assista

The need for owners to navigate a complex landscape of clean energy and water programs greatly inhibits participation in multifamily efficiency programs nationwide.
