CAEATFA is launching the Affordable Multifamily Financing Pilot, targeting affordable multifamily properties with at least 50% of the units restricted to income eligible households. The Affordable Multifamily Financing Pilot features a credit enhancement to help financing entities mitigate risk, and will support loans, leases, service agreements and savings-based payment agreements. It will be designed to leverage and complement existing efforts to finance affordable multifamily energy efficiency retrofits, and to encourage growth in private market lending.

The option to make payments on the customer’s utility bill (on-bill repayments) will be available for master-metered multifamily properties once the functionality is established.
