CAEATFA is launching the Affordable Multifamily Energy Efficiency Financing Program (Program), designed to leverage and complement existing efforts to finance affordable multifamily energy efficiency retrofits and to encourage growth in private-market energy efficiency lending.

The Program targets affordable multifamily properties where at least 50% of the units are restricted to income-eligible households and features a credit enhancement to help financing entities mitigate risk. Products supported include loans, leases, equipment financing agreements, service agreements and savings-based payment agreements.

An on-bill repayment option is scheduled to be added to the program in 2020.


The Affordable Multifamily Energy Efficiency Financing program is open for enrollment to finance companies.
