Full Resource: Designing, Launching, and Managing Clean Energy Programs for Multifamily Housing

This document is in response to federal and state agencies seeking to expend their Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funding on residential markets, especially income-qualified residents.

Government agencies across the country have issued Requests for Information (RFIs) asking for comments and feedback from subject matter experts (SMEs) on various aspects of a residential program design, launch, or management, be they for energy efficiency, solar, energy storage, electric vehicles, etc. This document will provide answers to these RFIs, from a SME, regarding greening multifamily (MF), especially the MF affordable housing (MFAH) market segment. It also aims to debunk the myth that MF/AH market segment is a “hard to serve” market and show that is actually the opposite, if the program is well-designed and executed.
