Details on CLPHA’s Green Funding Clearinghouse

Housing authorities can now apply for funding for projects to deploy solar energy at multifamily properties. The $7 billion Solar for All program is part of EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF). Interested applicants must submit a Notice of Intent to Apply by July 30th, and applications are due on September 26. An overview of the GGRF and its Solar for All program can be found on CLPHA’s Green Funding Clearinghouse.

The Solar for All program is best suited for large housing authorities or coalitions of regional applicants. The minimum application size of $25 million must be used to serve at least 10,000 low-income households. PHAs can apply for funds directly or can be a sub-recipient of funds on an application from a coalition.

At least 75% of the grant awards must be grants, loans, subsidies, and other direct financial support to tenants. Solar-related electrical upgrades and energy efficiency investments such as building repairs are eligible for up to 20% of financial assistance. Each recipient must demonstrate a 20% or better reduction in their electricity bills.
